MVP Returns

Blackburn Hawks are absolutely delighted to announce that Czech Forward Petr Valusiak will be returning to the team for the 2019–2020 season.

Petr certainly made a name for himself last season as a fan favourite and earning himself the MVP and Best Forward awards at the end of season Presentation Evening.  Last season Petr made 43 appearances for the Hawks scoring 20 goals and 32 assists making it vitally important that we secure his services again for the forthcoming season.

James Neil comments on Petr’s return:

“I couldn’t be happier to have Petr returning next season.  He was our stand out player last year and he brings so much to the team on and off the ice.

I’ll be relying on him to be one of my leaders.  He is well liked in the changing room and his performances certainly won over the fans with his skill and consistent effort.  He’s a great guy to have around and I know he will always put the team first. 

I know he had a fair few offers, so I couldn’t be happier that he’s agreed to come back for another season.”

Petr had this to say about his return to the team:

“I’m glad to be back with the Hawks next season. I’m feeling good here and I will do everything I can to have a good season and help the team succeed.  See you all in September!”

Own and Loan Shirt information will be released in due course.
