Matt Viney returns to the Blackburn HAWKS for the 2013-14 season. Matt was a key component in the Hawks success last season and the team is delighted to have him return to the team.
Voted as the ‘Players player of the year’ and ‘Most consistent player’ for 2012/13, Viney’s electric offensive production will once again be a big part of the Hawks attack as they look to defend their championship.
Coach Jared Owen said: “Matt is one of the most underrated players in our league – he rarely grabs the headlines but he never takes a night off and is a constant offensive threat for the Hawks. He has good hands and sees the ice very well meaning he creates lots of opportunities for him his line-mates.
He is strong in his zone and carries the puck up the ice with ease; he will have an important role to play in the Hawks this season as we look to develop on last year’s performances. The team are looking for more consistency and Matt will play a big part in that”.
