Cardiff Devils fan favourite, Justin Faryna, has left the club with immediate effect, citing personal reasons for the decision.
Faryna joined the Devils in 2017 following 2 seasons with the Dundee Stars and was instrumental in their league & playoff success, registering 33 points in 50 league games and 4 points in 4 playoff games.
Despite spending some time on the sidelines injured at the start of the season, Faryna was back amongst the lineup and the news has come as a shock to both fans and management alike.
Managing Director Todd Kelman: ““This came as a big shock to us. Faryna has been a big part of our team since he arrived ahead of the 2017-18 season. He played a massive role in our success last season and was hugely popular with our fanbase.
“I know they will be saddened to see him go, as we all are, but there is life outside of hockey and this is a decision bigger than this game.
“On behalf of the entire organisation, I would like to thank Justin for his contribution to the Devils and wish him well for wherever life takes him.”
