Last week it was announced forward,  Eric Neiley would be leaving the club to go to last season’s team, Sheffield Steelers. Since Storm and Lightning last faced each other, coach – Doug McKay announced he was resigning from the club due to personal reasons. It has since been announced that players, Tim Wallace and Ryan Lannon would be stepping in as player coaches.

This last time the Flyers visited the Storm Shelter earlier last month, Storm get a win, with goals from Byers, Hammond and Richardson. Overall, there was a total of five goals and 30 penalty minutes across both teams.

The Flyers currently sit in fourth place in the league table with 28 points, so expect a competitive game. Storm look to continue their point streak at home, having narrowly missing out on the win against Cardiff Devils last weekend – taking it to overtime. In the last ten games at home, Storm have secured 18 points out of a possible 20.
