Default MK Lightning v Sheffield Steelers - Sat 27/01/18 F.O. 1900

Saturday night is hockey night once again in Milton Keynes, this week we host the Sheffield Steelers for the final league game between the teams.

Home Team - Milton Keynes Lightning

Netminders

#?? Jindrich Pacl (CZE)
#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)
#79 Evan Stoflet (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 just one win from the last ten league games, Pete and the team will be keen to break this trend and start registering some points, however injuries to several key players, and a visit from one of the league's most successful teams, will mean this will be no mean feat.

First choice netminder Miika Wiikman suffered a mild concussion during last Sunday's home tie against his former club the Nottingham Panthers, meaning he will be unable to ice for a period of time. The club have moved quickly to secure the services of Miika's former team mate, Jindrich Pacl, on a short term basis.

Kyle Essery is also ruled out due to his continued recovery from a knee injury, whilst Tommy Mele is currently listed as doubtful to play.

Away Team - Sheffield Steelers

Netminders

#30 Bradley Day (u23)
#33 Ervins Mustukovs (LAT)

Defencemen

#6 Scott Aarssen (CAN)
#13 David Phillips
#17 Miika Franssila (FIN)
#25 Mark Matheson (CAN)
#28 Zack Fitzgerald (USA)
#29 Joonas Ronnberg (FIN)
#81 Ben O’Connor

Forwards

#10 Andreas Jamtin (SWE)
#12 Andreas Valdix (SWE)
#14 Liam Kirk (u23)
#15 Mathieu Roy (CAN)
#20 Jonathan Phillips (C)
#21 Tim Wallace (USA)
#27 Cole Shudra (u23)

#67 Colton Fretter (CAN)
#72 Kieran Brown (2 way)
#75 Robert Dowd
#76 Levi Nelson (CAN)
#90 John Armstrong (CAN)
#92 Jonas Westerling (SWE)

Head Coach: Paul Thompson

With the league season slowly turning towards the final stages, the Steelers find themselves in the odd position of sitting bottom of the Erhardt Conference, whilst currently being third in the overall league standings. However with the playoff places being so tightly contested, they are just three points away from 7th in the league table.

In order to maintain their push towards the top of the table, Sheffield have announced the re-signing of Finnish defenceman Joonas Ronnberg earlier this week. This will no doubt add to their already mean defence, who have conceded just 82 goals in their 35 league games, the lowest in the league, compared to MKL's 140 goals in 36 games.

Previous meetings:

Steelers 4 - 3 MKL - Highlights
MKL 7 - 2 Steelers - Highlights
Steelers 6 - 1 MKL - Highlights

Doors open at 1800hrs, with face off expected at 1900hrs

I will be attending and updating the forum, with Twitter updates @MKL_Matchnight

Good evening from Planet Ice MK, the doors are open and the place is busy already, for what is looking likely to be the biggest crowd so far this season.
We're 20mins from the start of the warm up and team news.
