Brendan Brooks

Fife Flyers’ forward Brendan Brooks has hailed netminder Shane Owen among one of the best he’s played with in his career.

Owen has been outstanding for the Flyers this season as they sit in fourth place in the Elite League table.

But as they head to Braehead Clan on Saturday, Brooks thinks his team have their best chance of beating his old team when they meet in Glasgow.

Shane Owen

“Shane’s right up there with the goalies I’ve played with in my career and he’s someone that gives us a chance to win every night.

“He competes hard in practice and works hard in games.  We’re fortunate to have him and he’s a great guy to have in the dressing room on top of that.

“He’s been able to make those big saves when we really need the save.  He gives us an opportunity to win and that’s huge for a team.

“Looking ahead, Braehead are a tough team and this will be the first time in while we’ll have close to a full line-up.  I really think this will help us and give us a better chance to compete and hopefully beat them.

“It’s a pretty important week for both teams.  For us in the Conference, we have to find a way to stay close to Braehead and this is a big game and opportunity for us.”


Ice Hockey UK

There was a very healthy turnout at the meeting in Manchester this week for the proposed tier-two nationwide league in the UK.

Led by Ice Hockey UK chairman Richard Grieveson, along with EIHA chairman Ken Taggart and SIH chairman David Hand, the meeting started with a presentation about the proposals, followed by an open discussion from the floor.

Representatives from IHUK, EIHA SIH, EPL, NIHL and rink owners attended the meeting and the initial proposals received broad support from the floor.

A new proposed tier-two league structure was discussed and Richard Grieveson was keen to encourage debate and dialogue from those in attendance in order to amend and enhance the proposals developed to date.

After broad support from the floor for the proposed set-up, it was agreed that a detailed plan would now be drawn up in preparation for the next meeting in mid-March.

A timeframe for moving forward was discussed, with a view to agreeing detailed proposals at that meeting.

League objective

To develop and operate a new, sustainable, financially viable and fit-for-purpose league at tier-two level throughout the UK which provides opportunities for British players to develop.

Representation at tier-two meeting

Aberdeen, Basingstoke, Blackburn, Bracknell, Deeside, Hull, Ice Sheffield, NIHL clubs representative, Peterborough, Planet Ice, Telford, Sheffield Scimitars, Sheffield Steeldogs, Solway and Swindon. 


The Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) and The Department of Player Safety have carried out a full investigation into the incident which occurred at Fife Ice Arena on Saturday 21st January 2017 during the game between Fife Flyers and Manchester Storm involving Manchester’s Eric Neilson and a spectator behind the away team bench.

Two video angles of the incident were reviewed along with the Referee’s postgame report, and both the Manchester Storm and the Fife Flyers were asked for their reports of the incident.

After everything was considered, the EIHL and the Department of Player Safety have assessed the following:

Eric Neilson of the Manchester Storm receives a 3-game ban for his involvement in this incident.

Neilson has already served one game of this suspension, during the game between Edinburgh Capitals and Manchester Storm on Sunday 22nd January 2017, therefore Neilson will miss the following games:

Saturday January 28th – Manchester Storm vs Dundee Stars

Sunday January 29th – Edinburgh Capitals vs Manchester Storm

Neilson also receives a further 6 games suspended sentence, which will take affect if he is involved in another similar incident during the remaining games of this season or next season (2017-18).

The Manchester Storm receive a fine of £5,000 for failing to control their players and have been warned of their future conduct.

This fine will be suspended pending no further incidents during remaining games of this season or next season (2017-18).

The Fife Flyers receive a fine of £5,000 for failing to control their fans and have been warned of their future conduct.

This fine will be suspended pending no further incidents during the remaining games of this season or next season (2017-18).

The EIHL also require the Fife Flyers to increase security at their home games in the vicinity of the away bench to remove the possibility of an incident similar to this happening again.

The Fife Flyers will be required to install plexiglass between the fans and the away bench for the start of the 2017-18 season.


 Brendan Brooks celebrates Flyers opening goal vs Manchester Storm

The FiFab Fife Flyers welcomed back Manchester Storm to Fife Ice Arena 2 weeks after their last visit to the auld barn which saw Flyers secure a 4-2 victory over their Gardiner Conference rivals. Manchester travelled to Kirkcaldy on Saturday night as part of a 3 game Scottish road trip, having played Braehead Clan on Friday evening.

It was a frantic opening period as both teams looked to get on the score sheet in the opening minutes of the game. Flyers had an early opportunity as they went on the powerplay when Manchester's Taylor Dickin was sent to the penalty box for tripping at 3:43 but Flyers were unable to punish the Storm with the man advantage.

Shortly after Manchester returned to full strength they found themselves on the powerplay with Josh Scoon being sent to the penalty box for tripping and on the resulting powerplay it was Flyers who took advantage when Brendan Brooks pounced on a loose puck and shot down the ice on a breakaway and buried his shot beyond Mike Clemente in the Manchester net at 6:30.

Flyers had more opportunities to extend their lead in the opening period but were unable to find their way passed Clemente in the Manchester net.

Flyers doubled their lead at 28:08 when Bryan Cameron found Chase Schaber at the net to make it 2-0 to Fife Jack Prince got Manchester on the scoreboard at 29:44 when he picked up a rebound in front of Shane Owen to make it 2-1.

The biggest talking point of the game came just after the halfway point when Manchester's Eric Neilson was ejected from the game after an altercation with a member of the crowd.

Manchester tied the game up just beyond the half way point when Cody Cartier got himself on the score sheet to make it a 2-2 game going into the 3rd period.

Flyers got themselves back in front early in the 3rd period when Sebastien Thinel continued his fine form with a finely taken goal at 40:15 to make it 3-2 to Fife.

Manchester's Darian Dziurynski tied the game up once again when he scored on Shane Owen at 52:43 which saw the game head into overtime.

2 penalty calls in quick succession on Manchester during overtime saw Fife go on a 2 man advantage powerplay and it was Ric Jackman who stepped up to the hero when he fired  shot from the blueline passed Mike Clemente and seal a 4-3 win for Flyers.

Fife Flyers MOM Justin Fox shoots on Joe Fallon 

The FiFab Fife Flyers hosted east coast rivals the Dundee Stars on Saturday evening at Fife Ice Arena as they looked to extend their recent run of 5 wins from 6. Flyers welcomed Chase Schaber back in to the line-up, Schaber had been out of the team after taking a heavy hit during the hogmanay clash at Murrayfield against Edinburgh Capitals.

Despite the return of Schaber, Flyers were still not at full strength, as captain Ryan Dingle and defenceman Ric Jackman both missed out due to injury.

It took just 16 seconds for Flyers to take the lead as Chase Schaber found Sebastien Thinel behind the Dundee net, Thinel spotted Justin Fox alone in front of Joe Fallon and Fox fired a shot passed the Stars netminder to make it 1-0.

The opening period was end to end stuff but the next goal didn't come until late on when Dundee Stars capitalised on a disappointing Flyers powerplay to tie the game up with a shorthanded goal at 16:27.

Flyers got back in front when Justin Fox found time and space on the Flyers powerplay to make it 2-1 at 18:36.

Just as it looked as though Flyers would take a 1 goal lead into the dressing room at the end of the opening period, Dundee tied the game up after a scramble in front of Shane Owen's net. Kevin Bruijsten managed to squeeze the puck in to make it 2-2 at 19:28.

Into the 2nd period and both teams continued to press for the go ahead goal, and it finally came for Dundee at 34:22 when Stars captain Joey Sides fired a shot high passed Shane Owen in the Flyers net.

The best goal of game was still to come though, Fife Flyers looking to tie the game went on the attack as Matt Sisca broke into the Stars zone, with no support he held up the puck until a pinpoint pass found Brendan Brooks flying in, Brooks picked up the pass and fired the puck beyond Joe Fallon to make it 3-3 at 37:05.

A goalless 3rd period saw the game go in to 3 on 3 sudden death overtime and despite being in control for the majority of the play it was Dundee who scored to grab the extra point and take the win thanks to Felix-Antoine Poulin's 2nd goal of the evening at 62:59.

FINAL SCORE: Fife Flyers 3 Dundee Stars 4 OT
