Blackburn Hawk Coaching and Management team are delighted to announce the signing of Finnish defenceman Kim Miettinen. Kim is a solid defenceman and has played for the Hawks in past seasons. We are looking forward to seeing him on the ice on this Thursday and playing against Solway and Billingham this weekend. Kim’s first game in front of a home crowd will be against the Solihull barons on Sunday 10th December here at the Arena.
We had chance to catch up with Blackburn Hawks Head Coach Steven Duncombe and Kim about his return.
“I’m really happy to finally get Kim back to Blackburn. He’s a perfect fit and will add quality and experience to the team. He’s won both trophies with Blackburn and Solway so he’s a player who knows how to win. I’m looking forward to working with him for the reminder of the season”
“Thanks for all your support ”
“I’m delighted to be returning back to Blackburn where I had a great time winning the league and play off double in 2016/17 season. I can’t wait to pull on the #47 jersey and play in front of such a great fans again and I’m sure we will have a great season!”.
“I know Duncs’ and most of the guys already and I think that I will be a good fit in the locker room and help Duncs’ and the team compete at the right end of the table.”
