COVENTRY BLAZE PRESS RELEASE
Genting Casino Coventry Blaze coach Marc LeFebvre is predicting great things from Canadian forward Jereme Tendler this season.
The 30-year-old native of Viceroy, Saskatchewan, joined this summer from Rapid Solicitors Elite League rivals Hull Stingrays, where he posted 292 points (172 goals and 120 assists) in 228 games.
Tendler surpassed 40 goals in a season three times and was twice named Stingrays' Player of the Year, Players' Player of the Year and Forward of the Year as well as being chosen as the Coach's Player of the Year in 2013/14.
He needed less than five minutes to score his first goal for Blaze as they began preparations for the new campaign with a 3-2 win over Cardiff Devils at the Skydome in a challenge match on Wednesday night.
LeFebvre said: "I thought Tends had a great game and he also made a great pass for Derek Lee's goal.
"He is dangerous whenever he is out on the ice - short-handed, on the powerplay or even strength. No-one has scored more goals than him in this league over the last four years.
"Tends is also a great team-mate and the guys love him already. He is the overall package and we are pleased to have him on our side."
