    Cardiff Devils Confirmed Signings & Departures 2022/23

    Fantastic news about Batchy. Unbelievable.. 11th season with the Devils! Remember when he joined the Club and was partnered with Adams. A better mentor you couldn't find. Josh coming off a career year last year and his excellent partnership with Big Lou is just like a maturing wine! Can't wait...

    Cardiff Devils Confirmed Signings & Departures 2022/23

    Great news Ben is back Excellent on the pk and with Sam Duggan they are a handful for the opposition. Also continuing the Home Grown skill after Matthew's departure...Ben is Cardiff born and developed through the junior Devils. :cool:

    Fixtures coming out on Friday

    Me too. Too many Saturday games to make me renewing my season ticket a viable option. Even if work commitments allowed, I just refuse to go on a Saturday now for the very reason you mentioned.

    Fixtures coming out on Friday

    I would be more interested in the balance between Saturday and Sunday home games. It was mentioned at one point that there might be more weekday games too because of TV coverage. Thinking of renewing my season ticket this season...but not if it means that most home games are Saturdays. It's...

    That needs a special announcement all on its own.

    Josh Brittain (sp) rumoured to be in talks with the Devils. Here's a winning power forward who was linked to the Devils before lockdown.

    Big Lou is fiercely loyal to the Devils. He loves this place. We love him. An excellent partnership with Batchy. Our Silent Assassin is still as mean and solid a blue liner as he was when he joined us 6 years ago. Welcome back, Lou.

    Kansas City Mavericks have today announced another new forward and a new defenceman. Could this be to replace Conger and Crawford ?

    A good goalie and a true professional. Guess he's happy there. A good combination. Hope for his sake he gets the support he deserves from his team next season....except when playing against the Devils!

    Rumours & Offseason Nonsense 2022/23

    Happy Devils fan here with BR signing again for next season. A GWG and PP expert. And some folks forget that, in the early part of last season, most of the goals were coming from him before Coughler got the CCS line firing. Jon Pelle was one of the best snipers to ever play in the Elite League...

    Rumours & Offseason Nonsense 2022/23

    Watch GOAT over the last 6 years....he scored goals at critical times, won games on his own and handled much bigger, heavier, better defencemen than those playing in our league last season. Anyone playing on his line will improve. Somehow, Joey will be just fine. ;) I'm sure other teams will...

    Don't think Ben is going anywhere? Harewood isn't at a level yet to merit bigger ice time although he does require that to improve his game. Will our 4th line be Davies-Brandt-Duggan with Josh Waller on the 3rd line?

    Would imagine that his age and salary could be replaced by a younger player of same calibre. Let's hope the new player brings the physicality and face off prowess the fans are hoping for.

    Disappointing but perhaps agreement couldn't be reached on a contract. GOAT is clearly going to be first line centre....Dixon was that position last season. Players move on for all sorts of reasons. Does this mean the Devils will be recruiting another centre, with Coughler and Davies the other...

    Impressed with this young man on Blaze trips to the IAW. Hopefully this season we will see a lot of ice -time for our young British players on all the teams. Team GB needs all aspects of a succession plan up and running as they will be entering a period of transition in the next couple of...

    Rumours & Offseason Nonsense 2022/23

    A good player and good signing for them. Let's face it, apart from the excellent Matthew (Myers), the Panthers' remaining crop of British players would be pretty average especially as they have lost two very good developing players to European teams (Tetlow and Betteridge)

    Cardiff Devils Confirmed Signings & Departures 2022/23

    Wasn't that marmite Panthers' player Jade Galbraith a good previous example in the EIHL early days? A terrific forward whose ego and drinking/partying lifestyle was tolerated by the Panthers' organisation simply because he was so important to them. Am sure his behaviour would have angered Corey...

    Joey is gritty, he can handle himself. Even his Elite Prospects profile refers to it when describing his style! He is less than average height for a hockey player but was one of the grittiest and most hard working players on our Team for 6 years. He was a master at puck handling and puck...

    Disappointing. Was hoping Matthew could return to the Devils and centre a fully contributing 4th line. He is still a gritty player, a top face-off expert and great on the pk. Nottingham fans are naturally very happy. Their gain, our loss
