The style of hockey currently being played in the UK is very similar to North America.

You can watch highlights of Blaze games from the past few seasons on our YouTube channel, here.

With the British Elite League improving year upon year, it has turned into a stepping stone to more lucrative European contracts. If you have a good year in the EIHL, you will most likely open a number of doors for yourself. Good examples include, Dan Bakala, Trevor Koenig, Jerry Pollastrone, Brenden Cook, Jeff Szwez and Matt Siddall.

 

 

That said, the UK and the British Elite League offers so much to players and their families that many choose to stick around for multiple years. Examples of such in Coventry are Neal Martin, Adam Calder and Dan Carlson, the latter two earning contracts in Sweden and Germany before returning to the Blaze for a prolonged period of time.
