Capps commits to Blaze

The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze are thrilled to have secured the signature of British forward Brynley Capps on a three-year deal.

Capps, 16, is widely considered one of the most exciting prospects into the country, not least due to his impressive recent performance at the 2024 Under-18 Men’s World Championship Division II Group A in Poland.

Capps finished the tournament as the leading scorer with 11 points (six goals, five assists) over five games, which was a GB under-18 record at Division II level. He was awarded the Forward of the Tournament trophy.

Over the 2023/24 season, Capps split time between the Romford Buccaneers of NIHL 1 and Raiders IHC of the NIHL.

Capps, who stands at 6’3”, scored a sensational 43 goals and 27 assists in just 29 regular season and playoff games for the Buccaneers and was awarded the Coach’s and Supporters Player of the Year.

With the Raiders, Capps appeared 27 times with seven points (four goals, three assists).

Capps is a product of the Raiders junior system, in which he tore it up offensively at all levels.

Coach Kevin Moore said, “Brynley has asserted himself as the top British player in his age group. His size and skill is something that with proper growth will translate well into the Elite League. He has strong offensive and defensive instincts and his passion for hockey is second to none. I am excited to work with him and aid his development.”

The Early Bird offer for 2024/25 Season Tickets has been extended until Friday 31st May.
