Aspray Glasgow West sponsored Glasgow Clan defenceman Brock Beukeboom says he’s counting the days to the season.

The 29-year-old is the first non-homegrown player to make the journey to Scotland as the days tick down on the season curtain raiser.

And Beukeboom can’t wait to lace them up and get on the ice for the new season as well as visit a place he’s heard so many positive things about.

“I couldn’t be more excited to get back on the ice after an almost six month off-season,” he said as he touched down in Glasgow.

“Some of us started chatting this week leading up to camp and I feel everyone is eager to get on the ice and start the hard work towards hopefully a championship season.

“My wife and I are super excited to begin another journey in a new country in Europe.

Friends and family we’ve talked to said Scotland is one of the most amazing countries they’ve experienced, so to hear that only add to the excitement.

“All in all, I think Scotland on and off the ice is going to exceed my expectations which is a great feeling.”

Head coach Malcolm Cameron arrived on Saturday with the rest of the non-homegrown players due to arrive over the coming days ahead of the new campaign.
