DOMINIK Gabaj admits his first two weeks at Bracknell Bees could not have gone any better, writes Dave Wright.

He scored six times in four games and helped to set up four other goals.

And in both home matches, against Swindon and Sheffield, the Slovakian was named Bees' man-of-the-match.

"This is beyond my expectations," he said. "I am very pleased. I am trying to help the team any way I can."

Having arrived just a couple of weeks ago, this is Gabaj's first experience of English ice hockey.

"I was in France for the last two-and-a-half years and before that, I was in the US for five," he added

"I like it here so far. The town is a little different than where I have been before, but the hockey community is pretty much the same as anywhere."

Gabaj, who will be 27 on December 18, said his aim is to "score more goals for Bees and help the team win more games."

He scored twice and had two assists as Bees won 5-2 at Peterborough last Saturday, and bagged another two goals in the 5-4 overtime defeat by Sheffield the following day.

Speaking to the News about Sunday's reverse, he said: "We were up by two with seven minutes left. Maybe, we thought we had already won the game and we didn't focus enough.

"We had chances to win the game and we were a bit unlucky with their winning goal."

Gabaj joined Bees after they had released Robin Kovar, who has since joined league rivals MK Lightning on a trial basis.

MK then allowed forward Caly Robertson to leave and last Monday he was announced as Bracknell's new signing.

The 19-year-old Scot, who has represented Great Britain U18s, had previously played for Kirkaldy Kestrels, Edinburgh Capitals and Fife Flyers.

Head coach Doug Sheppard said: “I’m delighted to pick up Caly at this point of the season. He’s a young ambitious kid who wants to play hockey at the highest level he can. Caly has a great skill set and will be a good fit in Bracknell.”
