Everything you need to know – Leeds Knights VS Raiders IHC 9th October
This Sunday we face-off against Raiders IHC for the second time of the season, following our visit to London on the 18th September where we left with 2 points after a 6-2 victory at the Sapphire Ice & Leisure centre.
The Raiders have since then bolstered their forward lines with Canadian import Matthieu Gomercic, who joins the Raiders fresh out of the ECHL. Matthieu has adjusted to life in the Planet Ice NIHL National Division well, scoring on multiple occasions and helping his team compete with the likes of the Swindon Wildcats who the Raiders narrowly lost to last weekend.
Another player to watch out for is September’s player of the month for the Raiders, familiar face Harry Gulliver. We’re sure Harry will receive a warm welcome when he returns to the Castle, albeit being on an opposing team.
Sunday is our only game of the weekend, so the Knights should be ready and raring to go by the time the Raiders get to Planet Ice Leeds, for the second away game of the weekend. Can we make it 11 wins in a row and stay on top of the league standings? Find out this Sunday!
