Same Devils names, different uniforms – this season has seen some of your favourite players travel to Europe to get ice time.
Here’s who’s playing where – and what games to look out for this week:
JOEY MARTIN - Last season’s Cardiff Devils captain is playing for the Stavanger Oilers in Norway, where he’s notched up seven points in seven games. Not surprisingly, Martin’s getting tons of ice time, and can usually be found on the Oilers’ top line alongside Rudolfs Balcers, who’s joined the Norwegian team on loan from the NHL’s Ottawa Senators.
SAM DUGGAN - The British forward is spending the 2020-21 season with Swedish third tier side Segeltorp IF. It’s not the first time that Duggan has spent time in Scandinavia – at age 15 he moved to Sweden to continue his junior development. So far this season, Duggan is showing all the potential that set him apart last season as a Devil. He’s racked up two goals and two assists to his name so far, and helped Segeltorp IF pick up their first win of the season last week against Sollentuna.
EVAN MOSEY - You’ll find Mosey hitting the ice just across the channel. He’s spending 2020-21 season with French side GAP where - up until games were halted due to COVID-19 – he’s been showing his signature speed and eye for the net with three points in four games. It’s unconfirmed whether his off-ice wardrobe has improved, though.
MARK RICHARDSON - Devils D-Man Richardson has just finished the pre-season in Germany with DEL 2 side EC Bad Nauheim. The regular season officially kicks off this Friday, November 6th, when EC Bad Nauheim take on the Bietigheim Steelers.
GLEASON FOURNIER - Last season’s Devils Defenceman of the Year is spending the 2020-21 season in Italy with Bet-At-Home League side HC Bolzano. The team have won three out of the five games they’ve played so far, with Fournier earning five points from two goals and three assists. You can catch them next on 10th November v Innsbruck.
MARK LOUIS - Devils D-Man Mark Louis recently made the move to Slovakia. He will spend the 2020-21 season with HK Ingema Dukla Michalovce – who currently sit top of the table of Tipsport Liga with five wins in six games. You can catch them in action next on Friday 6th November v HKM Zvolen.
