Brian Stewart is what some might call a veteran goalie in the Elite League. If you look through the lists of import goalies who come and play here, most only last a year and some, not even that. Following some of the interviews with the Elite League goalies this season, I can definitely see why that is the case.
A little while ago now, I asked some of the Coventry Blaze players about their furry family members and Jim Jorgensen was kind enough to share some photos with me of his adorable French Bulldog Fleetwood Mac.
So of course I asked Jim about this adorable little cutie!
This photo is the first time that I had ever seen who would become Fleetwood Mac. We were playing in France that season and my coaches wife drove me to the breeders. She was my translator! Alekz was still back home so I had to send pics and obviously we both fell in love with him instantly. So Fleet is an authentic French Bulldog, but sadly left France before he learned any French.

GENTING Casino Coventry Blaze fan Emma Knight is trying to raise money for Guide dogs for the Blind with this once in a lifetime piece.
Zack Fitzgerald, or Fitzy as he’s so often reffered to as, is a player who divides opinion. Some fans love him (particularly those in Orange!) and some cannot stand him. To look at his stats he doesn’t look like much. Two goals this season so far and not quite as penalty minutes as his fellow Steeler Guillaume Desbiens, some might argue that he’s simply there to rile up the opposition and cause them to make mistakes.
Following a disastrous incident with a bubble ball during last weeks first period break action Scorch the Dragon has resumed his duties tonight at the Skydome tonight against the South Wales rivals, Cardiff Devils.
The incident involved the poor Dragon being stretchered off the ice after he was hit and couldn’t get up. Following speedy treatment by the emergency responders on site, Scorch was sent home to rest up and recover.
But tonight folks, he’s back! All be it a little bruised and battered, but in good spirits regardless as he warms up the crowd at the Skydome arena. What a warrior!
Keep it up Scorch! Get well soon!

For this month’s OnFire magazine I was asked to get in touch with the man known very well to fans around the league, Zack Fitzgerald.
It seems strange to me to think I’ve been writing for OnFire now for nearly a year. I remember seeing an advert online posted by the Coventry Blaze on Facebook asking for writers for their match day publication.
How much do we really know about what Coventry Blaze’s Kevin Noble has been up to this offseason? I took a few minutes to chat with Kevin about friends, hockey, surfing and going down under.
