Match Preview: Storm to face Panthers in midweek action!

We face visitors, The Nottingham Panthers this Wednesday in mid-week EIHL action at the Storm Shelter. Get tickets here, or by calling the Box Office on 0161 926 8782. Face-off is at 19:30.

There will be NO home games this weekend 14-16th February, as your Goodwin Group Manchester Storm fly to Belfast on Saturday to face the Giants.

Last Sunday’s thrilling comeback game against Fife Flyers saw plenty of action. There were some milestones for Storm’s new players. Newly signed, Ivan Sijan claimed primary assist on Fawcett’s goal, taking his first point in Storm colours.

Forward, Frankie Melton also claimed three points on Sunday, helping his teammates crawl back into the game, with the first goal, an assist AND the game winning penalty shot.

Every point from now until final game in March against Sheffield Steelers counts towards April’s Playoffs, and we need Storm fans to pack the shelter, wear the colours and continue to support the club.

The club has recently brought in three new players, to show our fans how much we want to stay in the top eight.

As a club, we believe we have the potential to reach 7th place in the table. The Storm currently sit just two points behind Clan, and we still have two games against them this season!

Dundee Stars are also playing catchup to the Storm, aiming for 8th position and a playoff spot.

Visiting side, Nottingham Panthers recently acquired Canadian forward, Mathieu Tousignant, who joins the team from DVTK Jegesmedvék in the Slovakian league.

Expect a highly competitive mid-week game against the Panthers – who will be looking for a late comeback regarding final league positions.
