Weber: Devils will provide tough test

cbnp260815-1037
 
Coach Chuck Weber knows Genting Casino Coventry Blaze will receive a stern examination from Elite League rivals Cardiff Devils this weekend.
 
Blaze continue their pre-season preparations with a trip to south Wales on Saturday before the teams meet again at the Skydome on Sunday (5.15pm face-off).
 
Devils have already played two exhibitions games and their roster features just four new additions from last season.
 
Weber said: "Cardiff's learning curve is going to be pretty quick just because of the amount of returners they have. I expect them to be more structured than we saw against Nottingham.
 
"They will come out hard in their building and push the pace. They will probably have had about six more skating sessions than we have had so it is going to be a good test.
 
"I want to see how our guys can handle adversity and how they respond in those situations. It will show a lot about them moving forward."
 
Blaze will have Canadian defenceman Kevin Noble in the line-up after he missed out against Panthers on Wednesday having only just arrived in the country.
 
Canadian forward Chris Lawrence flew in on Thursday and will also make his first appearance while Blaze will continue to evaluate British duo Ashley Tait and James Griffin.

Hook seeks regular role in Elite League

Lewis Hook

Lewis Hook hopes to use his two-way deal with Genting Casino Coventry Blaze as a springboard to becoming a regular player at Elite League level.
 
The 19-year-old British forward has signed an agreement with MK Lightning this season - along with James Griffin, Bobby Chamberlain and David Clements - which will see him feature for Chuck Weber's team when appropriate.
 
Hook had an impressive first game in a Blaze uniform in Wednesday's 3-2 defeat to Nottingham Panthers at the Skydome in their opening pre-season match.
 
Hook, the joint-second top point-scorer as Great Britain won World Championship Under-20 Division Two Group A gold in Estonia in December, said: "It was always going to be a tough game.
 
"It was our first game back and playing with a lot of new guys. It is different training to playing a game but it was a close game and it could have gone either way. I was pretty pleased with my performance but there are a lot of things to work on.
 
"The two-way agreement helps us get our feet wet in the Elite League which is what we want to do and then play full-time in the near future. It is always good to get a little taster and hopefully throughout the year I can get some more games and get some more minutes under Chuck.  
 
"I was on a two-way with Nottingham for the past two years and went to the CHL with them. I have had a few games in the past but I need a few more to settle down and get used to the speed of it. In the near future it will be time to step up. The years are getting older and you don't want to get into a comfort zone. It definitely has to happen soon.
 
"My game is improving every day. They are professionals and they do this every day. You watch them and learn things from them. Every day I am getting stronger, faster and getting more confident. The more games I can play with Blaze the better."

Blaze 2 Panthers 3

Genting Casino Coventry Blaze began their pre-season preparations with a 3-2 defeat to Nottingham Panthers at the Skydome.

Blaze were without Kevin Noble, who only arrived in the country on Tuesday, Chris Lawrence, Drew Fisher, Ashley Tait and James Griffin. 

Ned Lukacevic came close to getting the go-ahead goal for Blaze but saw his short-handed breakaway effort clip to the top of the bar.

Goaltender Brian Stewart, last season's player of the year, was once again in solid form.

Lukacevic did put Blaze ahead 74 seconds into the middle session with Lewis Hook preserving his side's lead with a goal-line clearance in the closing moments of the period.

 
Blaze replaced Stewart with Renny Marr and Panthers did likewise with Dan Green taking over from Miika Wiikman for the start of the third period.
 
Robert Farmer levelled for Panthers at 41.03 but Cale Tanaka restored Blaze's lead at 46.47.
 
A powerplay goal from Geoff Waugh at 55.02 was followed a short-handed marker from Ollie Betteridge at 56.36 as Panthers took the win. 
 
Coach Chuck Weber said: "It looked like the first exhibition game of the year. There was a lot of sloppiness but there were some good things as well.
 
"You could tell we are still a work in progress conditioning-wise but I thought some of the kids showed up well. 
 
"We got to see some of them in different situations you might not see them in during the regular season. There are things to build on."
