Much has happened during the busy Christmas and New Year period, so let’s take a look at how the familiar faces of the new European team this season are progressing.
In Austria, Graz expects Ben Bounds to return this season. The GB national team goalkeeper will return to the ice on December 28 and will continue light training until he recovers from the injury he suffered at the beginning of the season. Bowns’ 99ers team fired coach Doug Mason after bad results and appointed an assistant to take over until the end of the season. It was also not a good match for Sam Har and Innsbruck, who lost five in the bounce. Sharks captain has scored 20 points so far this season. Finally, Dan Seman, who was fired from his job in Villach, was appointed as a new coach in Linz during the festival.
GB forward Mike Hammond has switched teams in Denmark. After raising good numbers for the last placed Odense, the 30-year-old was snapped by Frederick Haun. Charles Corcoran is Esbiya’s third top scorer with 22 points so far this season, with Rasmus Bjerm 7 + 14.
Early DEL2 leader Ravensburg was taken to the top by Kassel, but Petrassel’s Freiburg is now second. James Betauer has so far scored 15 points against Towers, the leader of the early season. Meanwhile, Mark Richardson has scored nine points in Bad Nauheim so far, making him the sixth-highest scorer on the team. His team is on the same level as Ravensburg, but playing more games.
More is happening in the cross-border Elsteriga than it was a few weeks before Christmas, and the Romanian team is playing the game again. Marek Trontinsky’s team won the OT on Sunday, but Matthew Tusignant scored two goals against Chukzereda in one of two wins against Giergoy before the New Year. Kyle Just has been in the same good season as third place overall with 30 points so far in the league, and he and Újpest have won seven of the last eight games.
In Italy, it wasn’t a great match for Rob Daud and Mark Olivier Valleland, who are now the last in the league. Paul Thompson and Unterland climbed over them after a slow start. Daud has scored 7 points in the team’s eight games so far, and Valleland is 3 + 1.
It was a great Christmas run for Stavanger, who scored 22 goals in three games. Joey Martin was 3 + 3 in that trio of wins that helped his team make it into the top four. The former devil is 10 + 8 this season and is his team’s # 4 best point scorer.Calle Ackered, who has scored 22 points so far this season, is Dukla Trenčin’s second highest point scorer in 25 rounds. His team stayed in the “play-in” place, scoring 4 points in three games after Christmas.
Finally, in the Alps League, Val Pusteria is at the top, thanks to two former EIHL players. Mike Casola leads the team 8 + 14, and Brett Perlini is so far behind him 6 + 13.
