Salem and Robson to ice for Blaze this weekend
The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze can confirm that British defenceman Scott Robson and forward Nathan Salem will guest for the club this weekend for the back-to-back fixtures against Milton Keynes Lightning.
The pair who are set to play for the Peterborough Phantoms of the NIHL in the 2017/18 season will travel with the Blaze to Planet Ice Milton Keynes on Saturday (7pm) and return to face the same opposition at the Skydome Arena in Coventry on Sunday (5.15pm).
Robson, 22, has near 150 games experience in the now defunct EPL with Peterborough and has also appeared in the Elite League 59 times with the Hull Stingrays.
The 6’1” right-shot blue-liner began his hockey career in the junior system of the Manchester Phoenix and has represented Team Great Britain at both under-18 and 20’s level.
Salem, 25, was a Captain of the EPL’s Hull Stingrays last season where he registered an impressive 26 goals, 30 assists for 56 points in 55 regular season matches. In total, with Hull and Telford before, his EPL regular season and playoff record reads 230 games played, 99 goals, 91 assists for 190 points.
In 2014/15, his 37 points in 43 regular season matches, and 4 goals, 3 assists in 5 English Challenge Cup games helped the Phantoms to a EPL league and cup double.
The 5’11” left-shot forward also holds Elite League experience, briefly with Edinburgh Capitals, and to a greater extent in the uniform of Newcastle Vipers, totalling 73 games and 11 points.
Coming through the Whitley junior system, Salem was a productive youngster earning call-ups to the Great Britain under-18’s and 20’s where at the latter age group he won a gold and bronze medal at the World Championships.
