Brooks focused for GB games

Fife Flyers forward Brendan Brooks says he is excited to be joining up with the Team GB squad as they renew their rivalry with Poland this weekend.

Team GB and Poland meet at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham on Friday (7:30pm) and in Coventry's Skydome on Saturday (1pm).

The two games are part of both sides' preparations for their respective World Championship, with Team GB hosting their first men's tournament for 25 years in Belfast later this month.

"I've been definitely keeping in shape. It hasn't been that long since the season ended and I've been able to get on the ice a couple times by myself." Brooks said.

"Going into these games against Poland it is about getting prepared for the World Championships in Belfast. Working on our systems getting a feel for one another and making sure our compete level is back to where it should be.

Brooks has been announced in Team GB's initial 28 man squad, with head coach Pete Russell having to reduce his roster down to 23 for the World Championship tournament which is being held in Belfast from the 23rd to 29th April.

"My plan is definitely to be a part of the 23 man roster. I think it would be a huge honour to be on the squad and represent GB. I wouldn't be going if I wasn't serious about being on the team and help go for the gold".

Chad Smith in action against Edinburgh Capitals

The Elite League has confirmed the maximum bench size for the 2017/18 season will be set at 19 plus up to three British trained players born in 1994 or later.

The initial 19 skaters comprises of a maximum of 14 import players, with the league no longer requiring an ’11+3′ split where the ‘three’ imports would need to be exempt from requiring a work permit Elite League Director Neil Black discussed the decision to define match night roster composition in this way at the Playoff Final Weekend Fans Forum, with the league hoping that the ability to ice  an additional three young British players will aid and encourage clubs attempts to bring through the next generation of home grown talent.

Youngsters Liam Kirk, Cole Shudra (both Sheffield Steelers), Chad Smith (Fife Flyers) and Jordan Buesa (Braehead Clan) are among those who featured in the Elite League this year that could benefit from the move, as the league looks to continue its growth and development over the coming seasons.

 Ryan Dingle celebrates vs Belfast Giants

Sunday evening saw the 2016/17 FiFab Fife Flyers take to the ice at Fife Ice Arena for the final time as they hosted Belfast Giants for a place at the Playoff Finals weekend at Nottingham Ice Centre. Flyers went into the game needing to win by 3 goals in order to secure an aggregate victory following a narrow 4-2 loss at the SSE Belfast Arena on Saturday evening.

A fiery opening period saw both teams press for the opening goal of the game and for the most part both netminders were up to everything being thrown at them. It was Belfast who netted the first goal of the game when former Flyers' player Matt Nickerson found space in front of Shane Owen's net to make it 1-0 to Belfast at 11:05.

Going into the dressing room at the end of the 1st period the score remained 1-0 to Belfast Giants on the night and 5-2 to Belfast on aggregate.

Into the 2nd period and Flyers got themselves on the goal sheet early on after Ryan Dingle put the puck across the line after a scramble in front of Stephen Murphy's net.

Despite bringing the aggregate score back to 2 goals, it was Belfast who went onto grab the next goal after a controversial hooking call on Sebastien Thinel put the Giants on the powerplay. Giants #25 Blair Riley put Belfast back in front on the night at 35:55 with a powerplay goal, before Chris Higgins made it 3-1 at 39:45 thanks to another powerplay goal.

Belfast wrapped up the series after Blair Riley scored at 44:06 to secure a 4-1 win on the night for Belfast and an 8-3 aggregate win.

PREVIEW | Belfast Giants vs Fife Flyers Playoff 1/4 Final 1st Leg

PREVIEW | Belfast Giants vs Fife Flyers Playoff 1/4 Final 1st Leg

Perhaps the most intriguing tie of the 2017 Elite League Playoff quarter finals, Belfast are set to take on Gardiner Conference rivals Fife at The SSE Arena on Saturday night in the first leg of their two match series.

Home form has been significant in meetings between the Giants and Flyers so far this season, with each side boasting a 100% record in their own rink against their opponents – triggering Belfast forward Blair Riley to issue something of a rallying cry to his team to make the most of home ice advantage during the first leg.

Whilst the last two encounters have seen two clubs score no less than 23-goals between them, both Flyers netminder Shane Owen and counter part Stephen Murphy have the ability to win games on their own whilst defencemen Jim Vandermeer and Ric Jackman bring vast experience to their clubs respective blue lines.

Pavel Halas and Dean Smith will referee the game, with Andy Dalton and Ilia Kisil as linesmen.

HEAD TO HEAD

In six meetings between the two sides this season, the home side has emerged victorious on each occasion.

The Flyers drew first blood with a 5-2 Challenge Cup victory at the Fife Ice Arena on September 3rd, but Belfast were quick to respond; bouncing back with a 4-2 win at The SSE Arena seven days later.

In the Elite League, the Giants claimed the early bragging rights with a 4-0 victory on November 11th with the Flyers battling to a 3-2 win in overtime during their next meeting in Kirkcaldy.

A wild 9-5 shootout ended in the Flyers favour on February 12th before the season series wrapped up in the Northern Irish capital with a 7-2 win for the Giants.

PREVIEW | Fife Flyers vs Belfast Giants Playoff 1/4 Final 2nd Leg (2)

Fife Flyers webcast

Two goals from Belfast Giants player-coach Derrick Walser put them in pole position as they take a 4-2 advantage to Kirkcaldy for Sunday's play-off quarter final second leg.

It was a tight affair as both teams made a cagey start to their quarter final tie, but it was the Flyers that were ahead after the first period through an unassisted Sebastien Thinel goal.

The Giants didn’t let that lie and took the opportunity to turn the game in their favour within 48 second period seconds as Steve Saviano and Chris Higgins struck quickly.

Derrick Walser added a third for the home side with four to go in the middle period to increase the lead to two and make things difficult for the visitors.

However Chase Schaber was on target early in the third to reduce the arrears to two to keep the Flyers in it.

But the Giants reopened the two-goal lead as Walser scored his second of the night to put them into a good position at half time of this last eight clash.
