Triple Win For Henri

End of Season Presentation Evening

Forward Henri Sandvik ended last night’s [Monday March 31st] End of Season Presentation Evening as the top ‘Cat, when he walked away with three club awards from a total of seven which were being presented.


The impressive import who has made 50 appearances so far this season has scored 29 goals and made 37 assists to earn 66 points and those figures, along with his terrific displays this season earned him the Supporters Player of the Year, the Best Forward and Coaches Player of the Year awards while fellow Finn Aku Pekkarinen, was voted as the clubs Best Defender (with 53 appearances, 10 goals, 34 assists for 34 points so far this season.)


Aaron Nell (P-28, G-32, A-16, Pts-48) picked up the Dave Richardson Award for being this season’s Best British Forward, while GB youngster Ollie Betteridge (P-49, G-2, A-10, Pts-12) was voted the Most Improved Player for the 2013-14 season.


The final award, the Players Player of the Year was awarded to Czech import Jan Kostal, who recently agreed a new one-year contract after racking up 34 games for the club so far this season, scoring 27 goals and making 27 assists for 54 points.


The evening, which also saw a brilliant turn out from the club’s supporters, was enjoyed by everybody and sealed a fantastic end to the season – ahead of this weekend’s playoff Finals and brought to an end a hugely successful  season which saw the club finish their English Premier Ice Hockey League campaign in 5th place, four points ahead of the 6th placed Telford Tigers.


The club would like to thank everybody who attended the evening and hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as the staff and players did!
