DOWD RETURNS TO LINE-UP

Great Britain forward Robert Dowd will return to the line-up for today’s game with Romania at the World Championship (Division 1B) in Zagreb.

The Sheffield Steelers forward had scored two goals in two games, before being admitted to hospital on Tuesday after suffering from abdominal pains.

After staying in hospital overnight on Tuesday, he returned on Wednesday and sat in the stands for GB’s 8-0 win over Lithuania.

He has now been passed fit to return to the ice for today’s game against Romania.

Head coach, Pete Russell, said: “It will be great to get Robert back on the ice.

“He is excited to be back in the line-up and the boys are glad to see him back.”
