Flames add Finn ahead of final stretch

Guildford Flames have confirmed the signing of forward Kari Sihvonen.

The 33-year-old brings a wealth of European experience to the EPL, having previously iced in Finland, Kazakhstan and Sweden.

Head Coach Paul Dixon said: “We have a clearer picture of our injury situation now, and they are not all going to be short term issues so we have to make an addition.

“Kari is a very experienced player at a world class level, and we are excited to get another player of that calibre into our line-up.

“We have played much better over the past couple of months and have banked nearly 75% of potential table points over a fifteen game run.

“We want to keep that going in the final stretch here and into the play-offs. This will hopefully be a boost in helping that aspiration.”
