Accolades continue to flow for DC
Before Genting Casino Coventry Blaze face-off against the Sheffield Steelers this Sunday 28th February, the club will honour one of its greatest ever players with the retirement of Dan Carlson’s number 26 jersey. Tickets available, here.
Dan's partner in crime, Adam Calder led the tributes and since both Blaze and opposition fans have shared kind words. We've also heard from Blaze's former Head Coach, Paul Thompson and another of Carlson's teammates, defenceman Rumun Ndur.

We are now delighted to share two more congratulatory messages from past Blaze champions and colleagues of Dan's:
