Former Cardiff Devils Elite League player Michael Hutchings is returning to Cardiff Fire for the 2018/19 season.
‘Hutchy’ took time out from Hockey whilst paying in the Elite League for the Cardiff Devils to join the British Army where he served for 10 years. During his time away Hutchy played hockey for the British Army in the Uk and in Canada, additionally helping out the NIHL 1 team whilst on leave from the Army.
Last season Hutchy signed full time for Fire, starting the season in the Division 2 side before quickly stepping up to Division one and establishing himself as one of the top forwards on the team.
Unfortunately the speedy Winger suffered a groin injury during the tail end of last season causing him to miss a large chunk. He is now fully recovered and looking very sharp in practice. Due to a work commitment Hutchy will miss the first few weeks of Fire’s season but will return to the team full time when the work commitment ends.
Welcome back Hutchy #16!!
