Brent flew into Scotland last weekend ahead of our clash with Belfast Giants but due to awaiting his international clearance, he was forced to watch from the stands as the Stars swept aside last season’s treble-winning, Belfast Giants in a 6-3 contest.
Speaking about his first experience of a game-night at the DIA, Beaudoin said: “Obviously you would like to be out there on the ice with guys but I am very happy that they pulled through with a big win.
“Belfast are a good team, so it is great that we were able to prove ourselves and this weekend I will be able to play now that my paperwork is through, which is exciting.”
The 27-year-old was able to meet his new teammates and get back on the ice in this week’s training sessions and Brent added: “It is nice to be able to practice with the guys too before the game because not being on the ice for a couple days before coming here would have been hard.
“So, I was definitely happy to be able to practice a bit and get the chemistry going as soon as possible.”
With his Elite League debut set for tonight’s road game in Coventry, the American shared his expectations before tonight’s match.
He said: “I am expecting it to be a hard game, I do not know too much about the league or the teams and the players, so I am just focusing on trying to do the right things on every shift and see how it goes from there.”
Beaudoin also discussed what Head Coach, Marc LeFebvre is looking to see from his latest addition, commenting: “He is looking for some production up top and I think of myself as a two-way forward, so I will try to give some point production but I can also help out on the back end.”
Finally, Brent will make his home debut tomorrow, also against the Blaze and after last weekend, he is looking forward to playing in front of another big crowd at the DIA.
He said: “The fans were great, the place was packed and it definitely helped us get that win over Belfast and I am not sure what it is going to be like in Coventry but everyone loves playing in front of a big crowd.”
