Devils Head Coach Andrew Lord is excited with his group and looking forward to the Champions Hockey League.

"We have drawn three great clubs and I am looking forward to the challenge of the CHL," said Lord.

"I am sure our fans will be excited to see these teams play us in Cardiff, and for those looking to travel, there are three great places to visit. 

"The group we are in is tough, but in reality, they are all tough.  It's the Champions Hockey League and we didn't plan, hope or expect to somehow get an easier draw.

"No matter who we would have drawn, you can look and see how tough the group would be.  We wanted to get teams and places that our fans would want to see play at home and away."

The CHL schedule is expected to be announced within the next 10 days.
