“We’re really excited to do it again,” Kulokov said. “The last few weeks have really accelerated and we have been very busy preparing everything.

“It will be good for the puck to drop in that first game and for all of our plans and preparations to be implemented.

“The Raiders are an efficient and hardworking team.

“They’ve made some changes to their roster this summer, but the minimum expectation is that all of their players will play and work hard for a full 60-minute game, regardless of the score or the situation. That’s what they do.

“They’ve made some great additions to the squad that will help them and we need to make sure we’re ready to compete and come out of the starting blocks strong.

“We’ve also added some new faces to our squad over the summer, so we’ll likely have a mix of bedding and brushing cobwebs, but we want to make sure we start strong with strong performances and pre-season results. , to prepare us for what I expect to be the most competitive season in national NIHL history.

The Phantoms also have back-to-back challenge games against local rivals MK Lightning on September 10 (away, 7:30 p.m.) and September 11 (home, 5:30 p.m.) before starting their National League schedule with a Cup tie. the League Against Bees at Planet Ice on Friday, September 16 (7:30 p.m.).
