the RN Kings will take to the ice in one of the UK’s most unique tournaments.
The UK Winter Classic takes ice hockey back to its roots and is the only outdoor tournament to take place in the UK.
The RN Kings will travel to Nottingham to compete against 9 other teams in the open air.
If you are in the Nottingham area on Friday December 16th please come down and support your RN Kings!
In the second fixture of the RNIHA training camp the Royal Navy Kings took on the Medway Madness.
In an incredibly close fought and well battled contest there was nothing to separate the 2 sides at the end of regulation time with the final score being 5-5.
A shootout was required to determine a winner.
Goals by #19 Brandon Hubbs and #67 Paul Hoskins and not a single penalty shot conceded by #1 Dan Barlow meant that the RN Kings finish their training camp undefeated.
The final training session of the day comes to an end.
The RN Kings will put into practice all their new skills when they take on the Medway Madness at 2215 this evening.
Day 1 of the RNIHA camp comes to a close.
The RN Kings defeat the Medway Eagles by a score of 7-6.
A shorthanded hatrick by Alternate Captain Brandon Hubbs #19 sets a new franchise record.
The tournament awards brought the week to a close.
Congratulations to the members of the RNIHA who received tournament awards:
RN Kings MVP – Gary Parker
