Storm Coach, Omar Pacha, had the following to say about the re-signing of the popular forward, “Firstly, I am delighted to have Val back in our line up ahead of the new season. He has size, skill and brings further toughness to our team. I have a clear role for him this upcoming season which we have discussed at length, he will be a physical presence for us mixed in with his play making attributes too. He gives me flexibility in my line up, as he can also play on D which we saw on a few occasions last season. That flexibility, mixed in with Val’s hunger and desire to return to the Storm made it a no brainer for me to bring him back”.

Manchester Storm GM, Neil Russell, was equally as delighted to have Valcak back in Storm colours for the 16/17 season, “Patrik is a player I liked a lot last season, I thought from around the turn of the New Year he was superb for us, and we expect that level of intensity from him every single night next season. Also, and myself and Pach mentioned this to Val just yesterday, when he played with that edge, the fans really started to identify with him & it was no surprise that they all were almost demanding that he be brought back.”

Russell continued by saying, “The other thing with Pat that I really like is that he is a straight talker, very professional in how he conducts himself, and I think everyone is aware how great a shape he keeps himself in too. We are building a team that covers all bases with size, grit & skill here in Manchester for this upcoming season, and Val will be another vital component in driving the Storm forwards on that front.”
