FARMER DEPARTS BLAZE
May 23, 2012
CPP Coventry Blaze can confirm Great Britain international Robert Farmer has agreed to join a team in Kazakhstan for the 2012/13 campaign.
The 21-year-old had initially been set for the second part of his two-year deal at the Skydome but has instead opted for a lucrative move abroad.
Farmer picked up the Clubman of the Year, the Best British Player of the Year and the Most Improved Player of the Year last season after posting 56 points (29 goals and 27 assists) in 63 games.
He joins fellow British players Ben O’Connor and Mark Richardson in moving to Kazakhstan.
Coach Paul Thompson said: “I have known about it for a while and the club have planned for his departure. There will be a more than able replacement for Robert’s spot which I have been working on for a while.
“I want to wish Robert all the best. These guys have been offered unbelievable contracts and we cannot deny Robert that opportunity.”
