It's time to take our weekly look at how some familiar faces are getting on outside of the EIHL this season!
Luke Ferrara had another good week for his new team in Poland, Krakow. The 2019/20 EIHL top goal scorer scored in his team’s loss to Torun before adding another in a win over Sosnowiec. His side then ran in eight against Gdansk on Sunday to complete a six-point week.
Gleason Fournier wasn’t among the points for Bolzano this week, but two wins from three have moved the Foxes into top spot in the ICE HL with two games in hand. At the other end, Sam Herr scored two in Innsbruck’s eventual penalty shot win in Fehérvár to move his tally on to 5+8 in 17 played.
In Denmark, Charles Corcoran had a goal and an assist for Esbjerg who recorded two wins in as many games. Mike Hammond’s Odense team remain last, but the GB forward managed a couple of assists to keep him on track as a point per game player after 14 played.
Mark Richardson was on the wrong end of an 8-1 defeat to Pete Russell’s Freiburg team on Friday night but did manage to get an assist on Bad Nauheim’s only goal of the game. He had a goal on Sunday in a win against Frankfurt to move on to 1+6 in eight games. James Bettauer was 1+1 in Ravensburg’s Friday night win to move on to 11 points so far this season in the DEL2.
In Norway, Joey Martin was back in the line-up for Stavanger after several weeks out. He scored a powerplay goal in one of the Oilers’ two wins last week which helped them move into the top four.
Finally, Calle Ackered had a five-point week with a pair of goals for Trenčin in three wins. With five victories in a row, Dukla have now moved into ninth.
