The Elite Ice Hockey League in the UK, and the buoyant transfer market hots up
The EIHL – Elite Ice Hockey league – established in 2003 is set to become a magnet for Europe’s best players. The league has 12 British teams that have a sizeable Canadian contingent spread amongst them. A wholesome total of 16 nationalities are currently represented throughout the league teams. Whilst it’s great that ice hockey is doing its bit for cultural harmony in the world, the real benefit is the action on the ice. Great players inject a new dynamic into the roster, and bring an attacking sharpness to the game, along with some fresh tactical ideas picked up along the way.
