Hello Devils fans, did somebody say red out? When I heard there would be roughly 120 fans making he trip to Belfast I was shocked! I thought maybe 20% of that would venture to Ireland to watch us play but that is great news that so many people will be coming and supporting us. Still being relatively new it's amazing to see such loyalty to a team.and speaking to a few fans recently they all seemed ecstatic about watching the boys in Belfast this weekend.

I'm also looking forward to redemption as I felt last game was the worst I played in a Devils uniform. It's a tough stretch we have and I need to be focused and prepared every night. We suffered another blow last week when Josh Batch left the game with an injury. I'm hoping he returns quickly as he is a key asset to our success down the stretch towards the playoffs. In saying that its gonna be a good test for some of of our other players to step up. Harding, Rupe and Piggsy have been playing great as of late and are gonna need them to play some big minutes for us this weekend.

I think the team got a huge boost for next season in re-signing Mac Faulkner! It's unfortunate that he won't be able to skate with us the rest of this year, but his support and "eye in the sky" analysis has been very helpful during the games. Congrats Faulks!

Lastly just want to say safe travels to the fans making the trip to the Odyessy Arena this weekend. Thank you in advance for the awesome support and MAKE SOME NOISE!!
