Telford Tigers are delighted to announce that #14 Jonathan weaver will return to competitive hockey this weekend.
Jonathan who has been suffering from a concussion sustained in September said, “I’m excited to be allowed back, it’s been frustrating sitting on the side-lines, but you can’t be too careful with a concussion.”
Weaver will make his competitive return in Telford Tigers 1 home game against Nottingham Lions on Sunday the 17th, face off at 18:00 at a Telford ice rink. This weekend is also our annual teddy toss where fans throw teddies on to the ice when Tigers score their first goal, with all the teddies then collected and distributed to children’s hospital wards.
Tom Watkins, head coach and general manager stated “Jon has been skating for the last couple of weeks in training as part of the return from concussion protocols. We are really excited to have him back to bolster or D and special teams. Jon is a fantastic player and a great role model for our younger players.”
Also this weekend Telford Tigers 2 are at home to Blackburn Hawks 2 on Saturday with a 17:30 face off.
