So we’ve seen the Gardiner Conference reviewer by Marty. This time around John turns the attention to the Erhardt Conference, or as many are calling it; the Arena Teams.

The Belfast Giants, the Cardiff Devils, the Nottingham Panthers and the Sheffield Steelers will duke it out for conference silverware and perhaps even the league trophy itself, the Monteith Bowl. The four teams look to each other as the main competitors for…

As the 2017/18 season kicks off, it’ll officially be 10 years since I arrived in Belfast from a small place called Fife (some of you may have heard of it). Nine years since I got to know Marty, around eight since Dave finally accepted me into the group and seven since I took Aaron, a guy I’d met a handful of times before through the other two to a…

As I type this out we are only a few weeks away from the first games of a new season with the majority of Elite League teams taking on exhibition games in the lead up to the first day of competition, for some fans your even closer to competitive games in the form of the CHL.

Tonight the Door14Hockey team got together for pints to talk about the 2017/2018 season ahead. This quickly turned out to be a coffee in a quite coffee shop as all the bars were buzzin, who knew Belfast would be so busy?

  • Twice monthly podcasts
  • Give always
  • Blogging
  • Vlogging
