Chasing The Puck have now been holding a weekly vote for the fan chosen EIHL Netminder of the Week vote for a season and a half. We are proud to be showcasing the best goalies in the top flight of British Hockey.
The Coventry Blaze have announced that experienced netminder, Miika Wiikman, has been released from his contract with immediate effect.
The announcement comes the same day that centerman Kelin Ainsworth asked for his release to move to the Aalborg Pirates.
Wiikman was in his fourth season in the Elite League, starting life in the UK with the Nottingham Panthers. After a pair of seasons he moved to Elite League newcomers, the MK Lightning, and then made the jump to Coventry this summer.
The decision to release Wiikman was made by Blaze Head Coach, Danny Stewart, who commented: “We would like to thank ‘Wiiks’ for his time here. He battled through an injury early on, and when he came back was put in a tough spot. He’s a great professional and we wish him the best.”
