Blaze Go Wild West

Last updated : 28 January 2011 By PM

This Sunday the Coventry Blaze will be fund raising in aid of Coventry University Hospital's Children Ward!

On Sunday 30th January, the fourth of the 2010-11 Blaze theme nights will be upon us with a fun packed family day planned from 3 hours past high noon!

The Children's Ward and Blaze have been discussing the possible gifts for the ward with the obvious consoles and other indoor games floating around as possibilities. However they'd really like to upgrade their outdoor area with a slightly more expensive option. They'd ideally like a wooden pirate ship for the children to role play and enjoy in the fresh air!

The Blaze are keen to supply a ship and will therefore be asking everyone to make an extra effort to help us make that little bit extra difference to the lifes of those children who need regular and irregular hospital visits.

Please help us to raise the necessary funds and join us in enjoying Sunday's Wild West night.

Tickets are available from the Skydome Arena box office, on 024 76 630 693 (option 0) and online here.
Coventry Blaze travel to Newcastle Panthers on Saturday and James Pease will make his 300th Blaze apearance in the game.

The British defenceman, 29, once again stepped in as cover in December after Blaze lost Jeff Smith, Brian Lee, Jonathan Weaver and Matt Soderstrom to injury and although the latter pair are now back, Pease will remain part of the defensive core and hopes to mark his milestone with a win.

Pease said to the Blaze website: "At the start of the season I didn't expect to play at all. I thought last year was a one-off.

"But when I came back I was one of only four 'D' so I have been logging a lot more minutes. I was not expecting to be back but I am pleased to have helped the team.

"I did not realise about the milestone but every time you reach something like it is a nice thing, you look back and realise just how much you have done to get to that point."

He added: "We owe Newcastle. We don't like getting beat, especially at home, and we will be playing them as if they are Cardiff Devils on Saturday.

"Last weekend was exactly what we needed. We got four points, a lot of guys managed to get time got their confidence back by getting the puck in the net and we had Jonathan Weaver back after his injury."
