Florian Czechs into Telford. Telford Tigers are delighted to announce the signing of 24 year old Czech Republic import forward Dominik Florian for the forthcoming season. The 6 foot 4 inch power forward iced for Coventry Blaze in the EIHL last season. Florian, who will wear the number 7 shirt, has gained experience icing in the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association). As part of the North Iowa Bulls team in the North American Tier 3 Hockey League (NA3HL), he was a Silver Cup Champion and USA Hockey Junior National Championship Runner-up.
Dominik commented, “I am very pleased to be part of the Telford Tigers organisation for the 2019/20 season. I have heard nothing but good things about Telford and the team the coach is putting together. I am really looking forward to the start of the season and showing the fans what I can do.”
Tom Watkins, Head Coach and General Manager, said, “I spoke a lot with Danny Stewart, the Blaze coach, and several of the Blaze players about Dominik and from what I have heard he will add something different to the roster. He’s big and strong which causes players a lot of problems at this level, coping with his size and strength. He has good speed and a heavy shot. He’s still a young guy and has good experience from the National American Hockey League (NAHL) and NCCA. I am sure that with his good work ethic and competitive nature, he will be successful for us.”
