Canadian forward, Jake Elmer has hit a fine run of form over the last few weeks and his sky-high confidence and skillset is clear to see on the ice as he helped fire the Trade-Mart Dundee Stars to back-to-back victories, this past weekend.

The Stars were 2-1 winners on Saturday night in Coventry against the Blaze and then defeated their Scottish rivals, Glasgow Clan 7-3 at home, on Sunday.

Elmer had a goal and an assist against Glasgow, with a spectacular finish into the top corner to make it 2-0 and even came close to scoring a “Michigan” goal.

The Alberta-born, winger has hit seven goals in his last eight games to take his season to total to 20 points (10G, 10A) and Elmer shared how he is feeling after finding his form.

He said: “It feels good, we are rolling as a group, my line is playing well and we have a lot of chemistry going.

“I think we have struggled all year to have our secondary scoring come through consistently but now it is finally coming through.

“Obviously, we went on a little bit of a skid there but now we are back on track and ready to roll.”



Jake also discussed how he was pleased to finally put his frustrations behind him, adding: “It is a long season, there is going to be ups and downs and I did not get off to the start I wanted to this year and struggled to put the puck in the net.

“Which is obviously frustrating for a guy like me who generally comes in and tries to be an offensive threat for the team but I have just tried to stick with it, practice hard and focus on what I need to focus on.

“The goals will come as long as you are playing the right way in the games and thankfully my linemates are playing well and the team are playing well, so I have been able to find the back of the net.

“Everybody is kind of giving their extra gas here coming down the stretch, we have big games coming up and a busy week ahead of us, so we are just going to do what we can to recover and prepare for this week and we will be ready to roll into Belfast on Wednesday.”



The Stars are in Belfast on Wednesday night to face the Giants and a victory would move Dundee two points clear in fifth and within one point of Guildford Flames who sit fourth, before they face Manchester Storm and Sheffield Steelers this weekend.
