Group D Preview for the 2015 Aleš Hřebeský Memorial

Group D is made up of one hometown favourite and two tournament newcomers. Hometown LC Custodes will be joined by the Regina Heat and Istanbul Sultans who are looking to make a good first time impression in theAleš Hřebeský Memorial

LCC-logoThe Custodes are the hands down favourite of this group. Featuring offensive players such as Dominik Pesek, Radek Skala and Petr Poupe they won’t be short of goals. Last year saw the Custodes finishing the group play with a 2-0 record and a +28 goal differential. Their first loss came in the semi-finals against the eventual tournament winners Kahnawake Rapids. The Custodes play as a cohesive team and run a high tempo offensive that is tough for a lot of teams to match. Look for them to make a deep run in this year’s tournament. 2014 Results: 3rd
