The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze will retire the #17 jersey of their record appearance holder, Russell Cowley tonight at the Skydome Arena.


There are LIMITED seated tickets left for the special game vs. Sheffield Steelers so if you’re wanting to join us for the big occasion, we advise purchasing tickets as soon as possible.

The ceremony will take place before the puck-drop around 5.15pm. We recommend that everyone is seated by 5pm. Doors open at 4.30pm.

Ahead of the jersey being raised to the rafters, a tribute video will be played, followed by the ceremony.
