It’s that time of the year when there isn’t much going on in the hockey world. Games are fewer and further apart. Fans go off to live their lives and enjoy the summer. I’ve personally continued to follow the rec teams in Blackburn, although I decided to take a break from away games until the Summer Classic final on 20th August and the two Nottingham Panthers CHL games after that, one of them is vs SC Bern. Should be a good start to next season.
Hawks have already announced a few returning players like Captain Lomax and Pointsman Riddoch, as well as some ex-Phoenix players bringing some EPL experience to the nest. Is it a Statement of Intent? Or are all the teams stepping up for the more competitive league? We’ll have to wait and see. Plenty of time to find out yet, many teams have been quiet with no announcements..
There’s still many questions to be answered too. Who will be playing for the Hawks Academy team? Will there be an entry discount for season ticket holders to U25 games? Who else is returning for the next season? Will we be aiming at a top 4 finish or settle for a playoff spot?
A little under 3 months to go!
