TYLOR Michel is preparing for his next meeting with former employers Cardiff Devils having “moved on” since being abused by their fans.
After being injured 12 days ago, Michel was booed off by a minority of the same crowd that loved him when he was with the club.
But he has largely put that incident to the back of his mind, ahead of Devil’s visit to Sheffield tomorrow.
Of the cat-calls, he said: “I wasn’t expecting that and then even on Twitter things have been going back and forth. But to be honest, I just want to move on for it. Friday is just another game, but I do want to do well against them.
“Each time we play them I want to contribute with a goal or two; hopefully the boys will get the two points.
“Maybe the fans don’t like me for choosing Sheffield, but I don’t think they are putting bounties on my back or anything like that.”
*The Elite League has rejected a Sheffield Steelers request for supplementary discipline against a Belfast player.
A statement said Steelers asked the disciplinary committee “to look at the game DVD concerning Belfast Giants’ Gregory Stewart potentially leaving the bench to fight Tom Sestito during the match at the Arena on Sunday 13th October. The committee has reviewed the DVD and Stewart does not leave the bench to fight, so no further action will be taken.”
