Robin Kovar steps in to help coach The Jets!

NHL draft and Manchester Phoenix favourite Robin Kovar has kindly offered his services to the Altrincham Jets for a few weeks after our very own Jake Harrison had asked him to help out during their PT sessions.

Kovar stepped onto the ice on last nights training session to initially assess the teams overall ability and will spend some time with the players in the coming weeks advising on where improvements can be made individually. Assessments of the teams systems and play style will also be critiqued and coached.

Kovar was a 4th draft by the Edmonton Oilers back in 2002 and has spent his career playing in some of the top leagues in the Europe. His experience and abilities will undoubtedly bring an edge to the Altrincham Jets as they look ahead to the summer campaigns.
