Braehead Clan forward Callum Boyd is anticipating a ‘warm welcome’ when he faces his former club Edinburgh Capitals on Sunday.
The 22-year-old makes his first return to Murrayfield since leaving the Capitals to join Braehead in the summer, following two years at the club.
“I hope the Caps fans give me a nice warm welcome when I go back, but who knows?” said Boyd.
“I’m expecting some fun and games at least and if they’re chirping me, I know they’ll just be joking, trying to get in my head for the game. I know they still love me – hopefully!
“It’ll be strange as this is the only the fourth team I’ve played for, so going back to a former team is not something I’m used to.
“It’s not going to affect the way I play. I’m at Braehead now so it’ll just be good to get back in that rink and just get playing there again.
“I love the pad there – it’s such a good place to play and it’ll be good to get back in those spaces and get into it.”
While he admits he doesn’t fully know what to expect, Boyd thinks new Capitals boss Michal Dobron has assembled an impressive roster.
He added: “The guys they’ve brought in seem to be good solid players – Michal seems to be putting together a tough team.
“I still speak to Tyler Plews and Sean Beattie there and it looks as though they’re going to be putting up a fight this season, which will be good.
“I’m liking the look of our team though. They’re a good bunch of guys and they know their stuff. I’ve definitely got good hopes for us this season.”
