Blaze saddened at the passing of “Coach Kev”

Following a hard fought battle with cancer, the Blaze are saddened to hear of the passing of “Coach Kev”, Kevin White.

At the side of wife Michelle on Wednesday afternoon, he left us peacefully and in no pain at the age of 55. 

Over the past year, Kev has become somewhat of an inspiration for the Blaze, being invited onto the bench four times in the role of “Coach Kev”, with a 4-0 record.

In his own words, he “retires with a 100% win-rate and that is something not many other coaches can say.”

Our thoughts are with Michelle, Kev’s family and all of his friends. 

On Sunday, before the game vs. Cardiff Devils, the Blaze will remember Kev with a minutes applause. 

"We love you Coach Kev, we do"
