2021-22 Signing Alert – Chico Cole

This evening, the Solent Devils are delighted to announce the return of top British netminder, Chico Cole.

Chico returning for his 12th season with a career 284 games, 15 shut outs and a 2019-20 season SVP of 92.82% comments on the goals for next season

“This season is to take off where we left the year before last, competing for the league title!”

Solent Head Coach Alex Murray commented

“To have the best goalie at this level is really pleasing. Chico gives us so much confidence when in net, that we also feel we have a chance to win any game we play. Chico has won us so many games with his individual performances, but his team work, communication and knowledge really helps everyone else out on the ice!”

Chico continues

“The goals are always set high and I want us achieve the best we possibly can.”

“The spring cup was great! I liked the competition going into the unknown with players from the league above and it was great to come out on top.”

Regarding the impact of lockdown and isolation Chico adds

“Focusing on the positives the last 18 months has brought me a new home, lots of rest from hockey, with time to physically recover and lots of work.”

On the subject of expectations from team mates Chico said

“I will always bring my best to every single game and in return the players give their best to help me out when needed.”

Finishing with the question of favourite rink Chico says

“I’ve always loved Nottingham’s rink and would love to play there with full house of fans.”

Chico will return to the Devils in shirt #1.  If you would like to sponsor a Devil or become a team sponsor, contact devilssupporters@outlook.com
