Dom on Tate Shudra’s return:
I personally am so thrilled to have Shuds back. He came in late last season and fit right into what we are building for the future of our organisation. He has spent some good time in the National league and needed to play more games to continue to develop to get back there. It’s important that guys understand the ever so high jump from our league to the National and again to the Elite. Shuds is a guy who realised it and decided to take the advice and take to heart what he will need to do to get back up there. I feel with a good solid year of ice time in all situations here with us we can help create the environment he will need to get there sooner. He is a heck of an offensive threat and probably one of the best skaters I have seen in some time. When he turns on the Jets he can really go. I feel we can help him use them more often and more regular as this is his biggest strength. I’m really excited to have him back. He’s a great character to add to the room and has spent good time around a team who knows how to win and will be able to bring that to us. Welcome back Shuds.

Shudra on return to Hawks:
I’m really excited to return to Blackburn this season. We have big plans for the season and I’m ready to be a part of it and achieve something with this great group of people!
