The 28-year-old from Fife was brought to the Stars by Head Coach, LeFebvre during his first spell in charge back in 2015 and since then “Mooresy” has not been able to stay away for long.

Discussing his return for another year, Craig said: “It is nice to come somewhere where you are a bit comfortable, obviously I have done quite a few years in Dundee now, so it is nice to be wanted back and to be back under Marc.

“It is great because you know what is expected.

“Obviously, I have been around a few places and Marc has been around too but to end up back in the same place again in nice, like I said it gives you that bit of familiarity which is great and makes life a bit easier.”

After four day of training camp, the team are starting to get back into the swing of things and the blueliner said he is grateful to be back on the ice and with a great bunch of players.

Moore added: “It is good being back on the ice, obviously it is tough during summer as you cannot always get on the ice or you cannot skate as much as you would like.

“You do your best to get on the ice as much as you can or workout every day so that you come back in great shape but it has been a great start to the first week and we have a really good group of guys and things are looking very positive.”




With two tough tests ahead against Fife Flyers this weekend, the blueliner from Kirkcaldy explained how preparing for games can be tough at this time of year.

He said: “It is tough to start a season when you do not really have a lot of video on other teams, you do not really know what you are going into.

“You can only really focus on yourself and make sure you are sharp, the team are sharp and that the guys are all excited to play that game.

“Camp can be long days and a lot of video but it is all worth it when it comes together on the weekend.”

Finally, he shared how the team are hungry to make a winning start to the year and also in the Tayside Derby.

Craig commented: “It is huge to get started on the right side and get a win right away, because playing Fife, we will see them a lot of times this year, so you want to start that rivalry on the right foot too.

“Playing them can be a lot of fun and hopefully we can quieten down that building too, once we get a couple goals.

“Then at home, we will have a good crowd and Fife always bring a good support, so hopefully it will be a fun atmosphere on Sunday and we can get the right result for our fans.”
