Thank you Shea

Coventry Blaze will have a new captain for the 2013/14 ice hockey season after current skipper, Shea Guthrie leaves to join Troja-Ljungby in Sweden next season.

The 25 year old Canadian spent two seasons with the Blaze, taking on the captaincy at the beginning of his second campaign.

“It was very important for this club that Shea signed for a second season with us,” said incoming Blaze Head Coach, Matt Soderstrom, “but we knew that he was going to be moving on at the end of this season.

“He’s a very talented young player and he has a great future ahead of him.  It’s a fantastic opportunity for him to go and play at a higher level in Sweden and who knows how far he could go if he has a good season.  We have nothing but good things to say about Shea’s time with us and we thank him for his contribution to our club.

“Shea being given this opportunity will help us with our recruitment this summer.  When players see that playing in Coventry can lead to bigger opportunities in mainland Europe, it only increases their incentive to come here and do well.”

Blaze fans will have the chance to catch up with Shea ahead of his departure at the club’s end of season awards night at the Coventry Transport Museum this Friday.  Tickets are available by calling the Blaze office on 02476 223220.
