Peacock relishing central role

Braehead Clan’s Craig Peacock is enjoying his new role in the centre after picking up three goals in his last three Elite League games.

The former Belfast Giants forward joined the Clan last summer and has played a key part in the team’s recent successful run on home ice.

“I moved to centre and I’ve been finding myself in the game a little bit more – plus with great line-mates, they’ve been making it really easy,” said Peacock.

“I think I’m finding my stride and I always want to contribute offensively, but I haven’t had the chances. I think I’ve been doing okay, so it’s nice to get some points now.

“It’s been a really good week and we set out wanting to have a good month because of the run of games at home so this week has been massive in picking up six points.

“There’s no easy games and everyone is fighting for something one way or the other. We literally can’t take a night off. It may not be pretty at times, but we’re getting the job done.

“We definitely can’t relax from here on in, despite having only one game next week. We’ll take a bit of time then the focus will switch to Friday.

“It’s been great getting the six points, but the Fife game is huge for us on Friday. It’s big Conference points against a huge rival and all our focus will switch to that and we’ll be ready.”
