Everyone connected with the Elite Ice Hockey League and Coventry Blaze is still coming to terms with the events of Saturday night, and the terrible news that was published on Sunday morning.
We would like to thank our fans and the global hockey community for their thoughts and wishes to Adam’s family, friends, and team mates; as well as to everyone involved in Saturday’s game in Sheffield.
The coaches of eight teams including Danny Stewart of the Coventry Blaze consulted with their players yesterday about what should happen next. These teams and players expressed their wish to return to playing Elite League fixtures this weekend.
Nottingham Panthers and Sheffield Steelers will not return to the ice this weekend, and we would continue to ask everyone to support these clubs through what is an intensely difficult time.
All games taking place this weekend will be organised with appropriate and fitting tributes to Adam Johnson.
The schedule for the Coventry Blaze will be as follows:
Saturday 4 November
Coventry Blaze vs. Dundee Stars (7pm) at Skydome Arena
Sunday 5 November
Dundee Stars vs. Coventry Blaze (5pm) at Dundee Ice Arena
Tickets for Saturday’s game at Skydome Arena can be purchased online, by calling 02476 630693 or by visiting the Arena Box Office.
