UK-based television channel FreeSports will cover Great Britain Men’s games at IIHF World Championship tournaments for the next five years.

This is the first time that a GB Men’s World Championship has been shown in full on free-to-air television.

GB were promoted last season with five victories from five in Belfast and will now compete in the second-tier IIHF World Championship Division 1 Group A in April.

The six-team tournament runs from 22nd to 28th April 2018 and will take place at the Papp Laszlo Sportarena in Budapest.

GB were come up against hosts Hungary, along with Italy, Kazakhstan, Poland and Slovenia, with two teams promoted to the top-level World Championship.

IHUK chairman, Richard Grieveson, said: “It is fantastic news that GB games will be shown on free-to-air television.

“After promotion last season in Belfast, these really are exciting times for GB and playing in the second tier of World Championship ice hockey brings us more exposure.

“The interest in Great Britain is bigger than ever and it is brilliant that those that can’t make it to Budapest will be able to follow us back home.”

Richard Webb, operations manager at FreeSports, said: “It is a pleasure to be a part of the Great Britain campaigns for the next five years, bringing the action to the hockey fans who support the national team.

“GB are coming off a fantastic gold-medal performance in Belfast and we hope to capture more magical moments in the future on free-to-air television.”

Fife Flyers would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who donated to our annual Christmas Toy Appeal 2017.

Each year, toys are donated by Flyers fans, Babcock employees and Fife communities, and collected in by the Flyers players on behalf of the Family and Community Support Team (FACST) who work with vulnerable and disadvantaged families in the Fife area. The toys/gifts are distributed to these families in time for Christmas.

Once again we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our fans. We have received a vast amount of toy donations for the charity, who will collect the toys from Fife Ice Arena this week.

A huge thanks also to Babcock Rosyth, and Specialist Cars Kirkcaldy, who once again assisted with the toy appeal and donated both cash and toys, as well as vehicles to help transport the donations.

A Flyers spokesperson said: “We cannot thank our fans enough for their generosity once gain.”

"Our annual Christmas Toy Appeal is an important initiative and something we are very proud of.”

“We hope that the many donations we have received will bring a smile to the faces of many children on Christmas morning.”

Thank you again to all who donated.

Fife Flyers goaltender Andy Iles has been named Elite League Player of the Week for the period ending December 17th 2017.

Iles, who joined the Flyers during the summer after three seasons in the ECHL, made 20-saves during Saturday’s Challenge Cup Quarter-Final first leg tie with Belfast Giants at the Kirkcaldy Ice Arena, with the two sides left evenly poised at 3-3 heading into the second leg in Belfast on January 9th.

The 25-year-old then followed up that performance with a 43-save effort to help the in-form Flyers beat Sheffield Steelers 3-1 at the Sheffield Arena on Sunday night, making a string of top draw saves to help the Scottish side secure their fifth Elite League victory in a row.

The American puck stopper has now helped Fife win 13 of his 19 starts in the league so far this season, posting a .913 save percentage (ranked 4th in the Elite League) and 2.56 goals-against average (ranked 4th).

Iles and the Flyers will look to continue their current hot streak in Dundee on Friday night when they travel to Tayside to take on the Stars before making the long journey South to face Guildford Flames on Saturday.

A Challenge Cup quarter final 3-3 tie and a huge 3-1 away victory against the Sheffield Steelers saw Flyers continue their impressive season this weekend.

Flyers hosted Belfast on Saturday at Fife Ice Arena and despite going 3-1 down in the opening period on Saturday against the Belfast Giants, Todd Dutiaume's team fought their way back into the game to ensure that they travelled to Belfast for the 2nd leg with everything still to play for after securing a 3-3 draw.

Speaking about Saturday's game head coach Todd Dutiaume said "When we drew Belfast we knew we needed to be at our best and that mistakes would be punished. All games are closely fought affairs and Saturday was no different.

"We've now turned this quarter final into a one off game. We have to be satisfied with our performances as of late and continue to build this momentum."

On Sunday Flyers made the journey to the defending playoff champions, the Sheffield Steelers, and had many fans around the league sit up and take notice after securing a 3-1 away victory thanks to powerplay goals from Shayne Stockton and Chase Schaber, as well as a 2nd goal on the night from Chase Schaber who sealed the win with an empty net goal. 

"We played a solid road game down in Sheffield. Andy (Iles) was an obvious pick for man of the match against the Steelers, but it has to be said the guys grit and determination played a huge role in that victory.

"Two powerplay goals and some exceptional penalty kills were the difference."

Flyers have now recorded away league wins against Sheffield, Nottingham and Cardiff following Sunday's result, but Dutiaume knows his side are not getting carried away. 

"The guys self regulate their emotions very well. This is a team that plays for each other and genuinely care about their team mates. I'm happy for the guys that they are being rewarded with results."

 Fife Flyers vs Belfast Giants post game summary

Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes-Benz, hosted the Belfast Giants in their Challenge Cup 1/4 final 1st leg tie on Saturday evening at Fife Ice Arena.

Flyers went into Saturday's game without Team GB under 20's forward Chad Smith who was in action in a gold medal and promotion game in Dumfries. Todd Dutiaume's side have gone head-to-head with Adam Keefe's Belfast Giants on two occasions this season with the Giants having come out on top in both match-ups.

Both teams were evenly matched for the opening 10 minutes of the first period until two quick goals from Belfast through David Rutherford (10:43) and Colin Shields (10:58) put them ahead.

Flyers got themselves on the scoreboard at 13:43 when Evan Bloodoff converted on a Flyers powerplay to get it back to a 1 goal game.

Belfast scored their 3rd goal of the period when Darcy Murphy found a way beyond Andy Iles in the Flyers net at 16:22 sending the teams into the dressing rooms with the Giants leading 3-1 at the end of the first period.

Carlo Finucci got the Flyers back in the game early in the second period when he converted on the powerplay at 21:36 to make it a one goal game. 

Danick Gauthier tied the game up at 26:13 when he fired the puck beyond Jackson Whistle after Chase Schaber was unable to convert a chance.

The period remained 3-3 as both teams headed to the dressing room at the end of the second period.

Flyers dominated the play in the 3rd period but were unable to capitalise and find a way beyond Jackson Whistle in the Belfast net who was equal to everything that came in his direction.

Despite their best efforts Flyers could not get themselves on the scoreboard in the final period and the game closed out 3-3 ahead of the return leg in Belfast on Tuesday 9th January.

 Fife Flyers vs Belfast Giants game preview

This Saturday the Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes-Benz, return to Challenge Cup action as they host the Belfast Giants in the 1st leg of their quarter final tie.

Last month Belfast Giants general manager Steve Thornton picked his Giants side to take on the Flyers in the new draw format which saw the top 3 seeds choose their quarter final opponents.

Flyers go into this weekend's quarter final home tie looking to take a positive result over to Belfast on the 9th January for the 2nd leg.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's crucial quarter final tie head coach Todd Dutiaume said "It is important to manage your emotions even more so in this tie as it is a 120 minute hockey game and you don't want to be giving up a goal if things aren't going your way.

"You want to keep the pressure up, you have to do that in a tie like this so we can go over to Belfast with a lead or with the game being as close as possible so we can make it as difficult as possible for them in their own building.

"You will see 2 teams match up who have both been playing very well recently so this will make for a good 2 game series."
