With the final overseas players having successfully completed their pre-departure covid-19 PCR tests, the Elite League has confirmed that there were no confirmed cases of the virus over the course of the 2021 Elite Series.

In an announcement at the weekend, the EIHL’s Head of Hockey Operations thanked Ice Hockey UK’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Matt Robbins.

“We owe a great deal of thanks to Matt Robbins for all of his support in putting the event together from the medical side,” said Hicks.

“He was crucial in designing our testing strategy which has ultimately proved to be entirely successful.

“Furthermore, we are also very grateful to everyone involved in the Elite Series for following our covid-19 protocol – from players, coaches and support staff to off-ice officials, each team’s covid-19 officer, arena staff and suppliers.”
