211013 | Weekend
The Nottingham Panthers are continuing their preparations for a huge weekend in both the Premier Sports Elite League and the Challenge Cup.
Saturday sees the team make the short trip north to Sheffield to take on the Steelers in the cup, Nottingham will be looking to continue their good form in that competition after completing two wins over the Manchester Storm in the last two weeks.
Then on Sunday the Panthers return to the Motorpoint Arena to take on the Cardiff Devils, in a game sponsored by The Nottingham Legend - Nottingham's number one family friendly hockey pub, with league points on the line.
Meanwhile news out of the Panthers' medical room courtesy of Lead Sports Therapist Laura-Jo Bowler is:
Massimo Carozza (lower body) is continuing to make good progress in his recovery after returning to full practice last week.
Matthew Myers (upper body) and Kevin Carr (upper body), who both missed Saturday's 3-1 win over the Manchester Storm, returned to on-ice drills yesterday and their progress will continue to be monitored ahead of the weekend's games against Sheffield & Cardiff.
Morgan Clarke-Pizzo (upper body) is now listed as day-to-day after re-aggravating a knock picked up whilst icing for Peterborough.
And don't forget you have two chances to win some Panthers' memorabilia this weekend as we have two "Shirt Off His Back" raffles on the go.
First up you could win a game worn, white jersey from Saturday's game in Sheffield, the winner for that raffle is drawn at 11.00pm on Saturday night.
Then on Sunday we're back in our stunning gold jerseys and the draw to win one of those jerseys takes place at 9.00pm on Sunday.
