NEWS: Lachowicz signs for second year in Glasgow

March 29, 2024

The Glasgow Clan, sponsored by Aspray Glasgow West are delighted to announce the return of British forward Robert Lachowicz for a second season.

The decorated GB international joined the team last summer from Guildford Flames and has been a key player for the Clan during this campaign.

And he admits staying in Glasgow for a second season was always in his plans after confirming his return.

“I feel like I’ve had a pretty good year personally so I was more than happy to sign again,” he said. “The way things are being done here has allowed me to do that.

“Part of the rebuild is that it’s not a quick fix and people have to stick around to get it done to get the organisation back on track.

“It was always part of my plan to stay longer than a year and I think the building blocks are there to push forward in the next year or two and get us up in the standings to where we want to be.

“I like the way everything’s being done off the ice as well and it’s made it a fun year in many regards.  Things maybe haven’t gone the way we would like on the ice, but we haven’t had the consistency we would like.

“It’s not too big of a fix and hopefully, next year we can keep building.  The foundations are there so fingers crossed, we’ll be pushing higher.”

Lachowicz has played 56 times for the Clan this season and has picked up 15 goals and 21 assists for 36 points during his time in Scotland so far.

His tally this year is his best in a decade since his time with Nottingham Panthers and has a hatful of honours to his name, including a league title, seven Challenge Cups and a Continental Cup.

Clan head coach Jason Morgan was more than happy to welcome the experienced forward back and revealed how valuable a player he has become.

“It’s been an absolute delight to coach and work with Lacho this season,” Morgan said. “He’s a tremendous person and his 15 goals have exceeded expectations.

“He’s a value to me, not only being part of the leadership group, but on the penalty kill and he’s a reliable player who can play in any forward position.

“His work ethic, awareness and attention to detail are all high end and you can see why he’s played over 900 games in the league and part of the GB national team.

“As I said, he’s a delight to work with and I’m pleased to have him return for next season.”
