Blackburn HAWKS are pleased to announce the return of veteran forward Daniel MacKriel for 2013-14 season. “Budzie” played a key role in the Hawks success last season and is popular amongst both the fans and his team mates.
Hawks coach Jared said: “Having Budz back for the new season is a real boost for the team as he is an excellent forward in this league who will score goals and create chances for his team mates. He played a vital role in our play-off victory last season and I look forward to his contribution this season.
“Budz is a great leader both on the ice and in the dressing room, the guys look up to him and listen to what he has to say, he’s an experienced player who has a lot to offer and he is well respected by his team mates.
“He wasn’t able to play as many games as he would of liked last year – due to work commitments – but hopefully this season he will be available for more as he is a key part of our offence and adds an extra dimension to the team when he is available. Budz is another big part of us putting together what we believe will be a very competitive team this season.”
