Chartrand is ruthless in attack.

Some things never change at Hobs Moat.

Paul Thompson's ability for finding talented players and building an exciting team happens season after season, the fists always end up flying and Steve Chartrand never fails to produce the killer touch in attack.

In this weekend's pre-season double header against Milton Keynes Kings he did all the hard work on Saturday.

A four-goal flurry and one assist saw Blaze through 7-5 winners against the English Premier League freshmen.

Yesterday, back at Hobs Moat, he had to play support to A J Kelham, in Blaze's 4-3 success.

Kelham is the forward who could one day take Chartrand's crown as King of Blaze.

On the away leg Kelham had produced one goal and one assist.

In front of his home supporters he fired in three goals and survived a bad slashing by Neil Abel which led to the towering Kings' D-man being sent off.

Kurt Irvine, Blaze's leading Brit, hit the net once on both nights.

But just as they had done on Saturday, Blaze were made to fight all the way for their second victory of the weekend.

The Kings rallied well on their home ice but could not close the two-goal deficit.

At Hobs Moat they came even closer, firing home a third goal with five minutes to go.
