Krimmitschu. Kelly Summers successfully operated on her shoulder at the Department of Trauma Surgery at Altenburg Hospital. The defender of Espiraten Krimmitschau was seriously injured in a preparatory game against Selber Wolves and would not be available to the West Saxons for long after this surgical intervention. It is uncertain whether the 25-year-old Canadian will return to the ice this season. The operation was led by Dr. Hendrik Baum.
“After hearing how good the German medical system is, I decided to operate here. In a conversation with Scott Timmins, I was also prompted that everything was being handled in a very professional manner and that Dr. Baum did a great job, so it made sense to reach out to him right away and not go back to Canada,” says Summer.
Meanwhile, Ice Pirates has expanded its collaboration with Alexander Sulzer. The skills trainer, who has previously worked selectively for Westsachsen, will be the new assistant and development coach and will continue to support head coach Marion Bazzany and assistant coach Andrew Hare in their work until the end of the season.
“I discovered my passion for coaching through my time as a skills coach and my many hockey camps, and now it is time to take the next step,” Sulzer says. Coach Bazani is also pleased: “I am delighted that Alex will be expanding our coaching staff until the end of the season. This is very important for further development, especially for the young players. He is at the beginning of his coaching career and will continue to be an asset to our team with his work ethic and character.”
