Default MK Lightning v Coventry Blaze - Sat 16/12/17 F.O. 1900

This Saturday we welcome Coventry Blaze to Planet Ice MK, for another Patton Conference clash, with Lightning looking to get back to winning ways following last Sunday's disappointing 5-2 defeat to the Flyers up in Fife.

Home Team - Milton Keynes Lightning

Netminders

#1 Jordan Hedley (u23)
#20 Miika Wiikman (SWE)

Defencemen

#2 Carl Hudson (A) (CAN)
#5 Ed Knaggs (u23)
#15 James Griffin
#24 Quin Pompi (USA)
#42 Paul Phillips (A) (USA)
#50 Matt Nickerson (USA)

Forwards

#10 Tommy Mele (USA)
#11 Lewis Hook (u23)
#12 Guillame Doucet (CAN)
#14 Alex Forbes (u23)
#16 Ben Foster (USA)
#19 Kyle Essery (CAN)
#21 Luc Johnson (u23)
#22 Denny Kearney (USA)
#25 Kevin King (C) (CAN)
#26 Christian Isackson (USA)
#72 Glenn Billing (u23)
#78 Francis Verreault-Paul (CAN)
#89 Jonathan Boxill

Head Coach: Peter Russell

With the release of Ludwig Karlsson, suspensions issued to Matt Nickerson (2 games) and Francis Verrault-Paul (4 games) and Ed Knaggs playing for GB U20's, there is a strong chance Lightning will be short-benched for the next few games. However there are no fixtures for either Swindon Wildcats or Peterborough Phantoms on Saturday, so potentially Glenn Billing and Luc Johnson could be available to play up.

As it stands, Pete Russell will have 2 NM's, 4 Defencemen and 10 Forwards at his disposal. Thankfully with no Sunday fixture this week, the team will have the best part of a week to recover before the crunch Challenge Cup fixture against Nottingham Panthers.

Away Team - Coventry Blaze

Netminders

#30 Renny Marr (u23)
#37 Brython Preece
#52 Kevin Nastiuk (CAN)

Defencemen

#4 Oliver Stone (u23)
#5 Jordan Stokes (u23)
#7 Dax Lauwers (USA)
#8 Gaelan Patterson (CAN)
#18 Gustav Ahnelov (SWE)
#45 Vojtech Kloz (CZE)
#56 Kevin Noble (CAN)
#58 David Clement (u23)

Forwards

#9 Ben Lake (CAN)
#13 Patrick Moisio (FIN)
#16 Jordan Pietrus (C) (CAN)
#19 Ryan Dingle (A) (USA)
#23 Brett Robinson (CAN)
#29 Luke Ferrara
#41 Adam Courchaine (CAN)
#47 Danick Paquette (CAN)
#59 Ross Venus (u23)
#71 Edgars Bebris (LAT)
#88 Marc-Olivier Vallerand (CAN)

Head Coach: Danny Stewart

Fortunately for Pete and the team, we won't be the only short benched side for this game, as Coventry Blaze are likely to be without:
#4 Stone, #5 Stokes & #30 Marr (2 way players)
#18 Ahnelov, #19 Dingle & #23 Robinson (Potentially still on the injury list)
#47 Paquette (serving the final game of 5 game suspension)

This would leave Coach Stewart with 2 NM's, 5 Defencemen and 8 Forwards.

Blaze captain Jordan Pietrus is the current EIHL Player of the Week for his role in the Blaze picking up 4pts last weekend. Against Braehead he notched two assists and the game ending goal in overtime, the following night against Edinburgh he scored a further two goals, including another game winner.

Previous Meetings:

MKL 4 - 3 Blaze (pre season)
Blaze 3 - 4 MKL (pre season)
Blaze 4 - 7 MKL (Challenge Cup)
MKL 5 - 1 Blaze (Challenge Cup)
Blaze 5 - 3 MKL (EIHL)
MKL 5 (OT) - 4 Blaze (EIHL)

Doors open at Planet Ice MK at 1800, with face off expected at 1900

I will be updating the forum from the game, with usual Twitter update @MKL_Matchnight

Does anyone know how to amend the thread title, as I've just noticed I put the wrong date in there?

MKL appear to be without:

#5 Knaggs
#14 Forbes
#50 Nickerson
#78 Verrault-Paul

Which means #21 Johnson and #72 Billing are icing tonight!
