Robert Lachowicz says he is looking forward to seeing how Great Britain fare against a “world-class” outfit next week.
GB face Norway – who are ranked 11th in the world – at Nottingham’s National Ice Centre on Tuesday 1st November and again the following night at Ice Arena Wales in Cardiff.
“It is going to be interesting – it’s an opportunity we’ve not really had before,” said the Nottingham Panthers forward.
“We played against some quality teams in the Olympic Final Qualifying four years ago, but it will be good to see how we fare against a world-class team.
“The last few years we have been right on the brink of being promoted.
“I think maybe with a little extra in mid-season – and guys playing together a little more – then hopefully that will push us over the edge and up into the division where I think we belong.”
GB head coach Pete Russell has named a squad of 43 for the games and has selected two different teams.
