Manchester Storm are delighted to confirm the return of defensive lynchpin Dallas Ehrhardt, for his eighth stint with the club; paired with his playing duties, Ehrhardt will continue in his role of player-assistant coach in the 2023/24 EIHL campaign.
The blueliner is the most capped player in modern franchise history, with 312 EIHL and 14 Elite Series appearances for the club. Ehrhardt also holds the overall club’s points record with 174 (60G 114A). Furthermore, the dual-national has represented Great Britain (from 2018) making 20 international appearances to date.
In a season that will see Dallas Ehrhardt become the outright all time appearance holder for the Manchester Storm organisation, the club have rewarded Dallas with a testimonial which will be a night to celebrate this achievement.
The returning defenceman, Ehrhardt commented: “I couldn’t be more excited to be back for another year and when Finner discussed the opportunity to host a testimonial, I got to work to plan an event that I know our amazing Storm fans can get behind. I can’t wait for the season and get back to the shelter.”
Head Coach Matt Ginn had this to say about securing the veteran presence of Ehrhardt for another Elite League season: “I’m thrilled to bring Dallas back for another season. He is an integral part of the organization both on and off the ice. His service to the club has been outstanding and he’s very deserving of the testimonial he is being awarded. I’m very happy to work with Dallas again and look forward to what he will bring to the team.”
The event will be held inside Planet Ice, Altrincham on Friday 26th April 2024 following the conclusion of the EIHL season. The celebratory evening will include familiar faces including Manchester Storm ‘legends’ of the present day and even stars from the ‘original’ Storm era of the 90’s/00’s! Regardless of if you’re a brand new fan of the organisation or have been around since the ‘arena’ days, this is sure to be a very special evening bringing together Storm fans with the wider hockey community.
