COVENTRY BLAZE NEWS
Genting Casino Coventry Blaze can confirm they have released Canadian forward Chris Lawrence.
The 28-year-old native of Toronto, Ontario, joined in the summer after spending last season with Elite League rivals Nottingham Panthers.
Coach Chuck Weber said: "The organisation has decided to make the difficult decision to release Chris from his contract.
"He is a good kid and we wish him nothing but the best for the future.
"Unfortunately, due to the lack of success we have had, tough decisions have to be made.
"The organisation will continue to do everything it can to get the team moving in the right direction."
