Devils await Coventry Blaze in pre-season

Craig Gibbons 25th May, 2018

COVENTRY Blaze will begin their 2018/19 pre-season campaign with back-to-back fixtures against the reigning Elite League and play-off champions Cardiff Devils.

The first meeting will take place at Ice Arena Wales on August 25 with the return fixture at the Skydome Arena on August 26.

The two teams last met in the Elite League Playoff quarter-finals with the Devils just about finding a way past the Blaze in a magnificent two-legged tie.

Following the weekend clash with Cardiff, Blaze will then move on to face local-rivals Milton Keynes at the Skydome on August 29 with the reverse pre-season affair to be played at Planet Ice Arena, Milton Keynes, on September 5.

The Blaze also expect to confirm an away and home fixture on September 1 and 2 respectively with opposition to be confirmed.
