Fife Flyers vs Herlev Eagles

This weekend sees the Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes-Benz, return to pre-season action at Fife Ice Arena ahead of the 2019/20 Elite Ice Hockey League campaign. 

This weekend Flyers host German DEL2 side EV Landshut in a home double header on Saturday and Sunday. 

Landshut are based in Bavaria, Germany and currently play in DEL2 having won promotion from Oberliga, the third level of ice hockey in Germany, last season. The team was founded in 1948 as Eislaufverein Landshut. Landshut play their home games at the Eisstadion am Gutenbergweg , where they have played since 1957. The arena has a capacity of 6,750.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's pre-season double header, head coach Todd Dutiaume said "Preparations for this weekend have gone well, the guys are upbeat and getting to know each other. I am excited to take on a stronger challenge and see what the guys can do.

"Last weekend was a pretty successful weekend. We got a good look at the guys, and got a good look at the young guys. We saw there were some conditioning issues, but that is to be accepted in the first week on the ice together. I am hoping to see an improvement weekend and more possesion on the puck.

"I liked the size and mobility of our defence, our offensive firepower has never been in question. It will be good to get Adam Morrison a little bit more time at the back end, and to see how they are gelling this weekend."

Flyers were without brothers Paul and Tim Crowder, as well as Dylan Qualie and Danick Gauthier last weekend. Now with the Crowder brothers and Quaile's season now over in the Australian Ice Hockey League, Dutiaume has confirmed that the club are working to get the guys over for this weekend but is not in a position to confirm if they will be in on time for this weekend.

"The logistics of getting players over from Australia compared to North America are trickier. We are trying our best to get the guys in on time but if that doesn't happen they will certainly be in on time for the first challenge cup games."
