The Peterborough Phantoms would like to wish Goalie Coach, Euan King, all the very best as he embarks on a new adventure with Ferencvárosi TC in Budapest.
Euan was a product of the junior system in Peterborough and iced for the Club in more than one spell at Planet Ice Peterborough. He was a part of the 2008/09 treble winning roster and ended his playing career back in Peterborough in 2017/18. He has been the Phantoms’ Goalie Coach since 2019/20 and is also the Great Britain National Team’s Goalie Coach.
In 2020/21, Euan worked with the Nottingham Panthers during their Elite Series Cup victory, in the absence of the regular season.
But he’ll be moving on to pastures new for the upcoming 2021/22 season as he takes on the Goalie Coach role with Ferencvárosi TC in Budapest.
On his time with the Phantoms, Euan said the following: “I really enjoyed my time as part of the coaching staff with the Phantoms as well as working with the juniors over the past 10 years. I learnt a lot from Slava, Jason and Jon Kynaston over my years involved with the Phantoms set up and I thank them all. They have played a big part on my journey as a coach.
“The Phantoms are in really good hands with Marrsy, Bainsy and Luke. These three have been incredible to work with and are driven to get better every day! I am going to miss working with these three every week but we will remain in contact for sure!
“Finally, Peterborough will always be my home and the Phantoms will always be my team. It’s a family and I will always be looking out for the results and staying in contact with the guys.
“I’m excited for this new challenge and getting out to Budapest to start with Ferencváros.” Euan concluded.
And Head Coach, Slava Koulikov, was keen to acknowledge the impact Kinger has made at the Club: “Euan has been unbelievable with our guys and has really improved our goaltenders. He’s worked with our senior guys, but also the juniors, and the progression made throughout the age groups has been brilliant. We’ve really enjoyed working with Euan and we wish him every success and the very best of luck with his new challenge in Hungary!”
Everyone at the Peterborough Phantoms would like to wish Kinger the best of luck in his move, we’ll be keeping an eye on his new team’s results and he’ll always be welcome back in Peterborough.
Good luck, Kinger!
