Aberdeen Lynx head coach Owen Reynolds will lead his side into the Scottish National League on a high after their second consecutive win.
Despite the Lynx suffering from a string of disappointing results in the early-season Stuart Robertson Cup, the squad proved their determination with a 15-0 triumph over Dundee Tigers.
The coach said: “Saturday’s game was one of those rare days we had a large pool of players available so we were keen to use it to our advantage.
“After a laboured win against Kilmarnock Thunder the week before, we wanted to put in a strong performance before the league starts this Saturday.
“From a coach’s perspective, I couldn’t have been happier with how they played as a team.
“Obviously everyone wants to be on the ice playing as much as possible, but with the bigger squad they accepted there wouldn’t be as much ice time as usual.
“All credit to them, they stuck to the game plan and reaped the rewards. It was great to see goals coming from so many different players for the second week in a row.
“It shows everyone is keen to make their mark on the team, which stands us in good stead for when things get more competitive.
“It was also nice to see Craig Chalmers get a well-deserved shut-out. He did have periods of inactivity but was always ready when called upon which topped off a solid team performance.”
The SNL season kicks off this Saturday, with the Granite City side taking on North Ayrshire Wild at their home venue in Aberdeen.
Reynolds added: “Although Saturday’s game didn’t mean too much, it has allowed us to take some confidence into our league opener.
“The Wild have strengthened their squad over the summer and have picked up some good results to seal a place in the Stuart Robertson Cup final, so I fully anticipate a much tighter encounter.
“We know what we’re capable of and how good we can be on our day.
“I’m fairly sure the boys will be up for it knowing two points are at stake.”
