Cardiff Fire are delighted to announce the new signing of Kristians Kasjavanos and the return of Chris Fox. 16 year old Kristians arrived in Cardiff earlier in the summer to join Cardiff under 18’s and was invited to practice with the both Fire teams. After impressing during those sessions, Kristians has been offered a spot on the Cardiff Fire team this season.
Also, returning to the line up is London born Chris Fox. Chris joined Cardiff Fire last season and impressed with his work rate. 27 year old Fox has over 10 years national league experience playing for playing for Slough, Harringey and Lee Valley with an EPL game for Slough Jets as a teenager. Chris splits his time in Cardiff between hockey and working as a doctor.
Head Coach Mark Cuddihy added:
Kristians has been a real surprise, I was informed by the under 18’s coach Andy Lloyd that he would be arriving and we asked him to skate with us. He’s looked really good in practice and you can see he has a great hockey brain for such a young player. He played last weekend for the Fire two team and was very impressive. I’m excited to see him develop with ourselves and the under 18’s this season. With Foxy we know we get 100% work rate. We have a very young team this year so having someone in the room with Foxy’s experience with be incredible valuable. He works incredibly hard every shift and is someone we can really rely on every time he steps on the ice.
