Hazeldine signs two-year deal

The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze are pleased to confirm the re-signing of British defenceman Archie Hazeldine on a new one-way, two-year deal.

Hazeldine, 20, iced 39 times in Elite League competitions with Blaze last season and had two assists.

The 6’3” blue-liner also played 30 times for the NIHL’s Telford Tigers as part of a two-way deal, and amassed an impressive 30 points (give goals, 25 assists) as the Tigers reached the playoff semi-finals.

Hazeldine moved to Coventry ahead of the 2023/24 campaign, following two seasons split between the Nottingham Panthers (EIHL) and Leeds Knights (NIHL).

In 51 appearances for the Panthers, Nottingham born Hazeldine contributed 10 points (one goal, nine assists) and with Leeds he had 44 points (11 goals, 33 assists), helping them to a league and playoff championship.

Internationally, Hazeldine has represented Great Britain at the under-18 and 20’s World Junior Championships winning a silver and two bronze medals.

Head Coach Kevin Moore said, “I am really happy that Archie is on board for two seasons. He skates well and has a good level of skill. His potential in both ends of the rink is really exciting.

“I am eager to help develop his game so that he can become one of the more well-rounded British defencemen in the league.

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