Glasgow Clan return to the Braehead Arena on Sunday Night for the second match in a home double header.

The Milton Keynes Lightning will provide the opposition and our Match Night Live Reporter, David Marshall, (@marshalldave38), looks over some of their key dangermen.

#1 Robbie Baillargeon – C

A man who only joined the Lightning at the end of October but has quickly become the top goalscorer in the team. He has sixteen goals to his name in only 25 games, a return that is not to be sniffed at.

The 25-year-old American from Connecticut had been bouncing around the ECHL as he tried to get to grips with the professional game after leaving the NCAA College system in 2017. It appears he has found his grove in Milton Keynes and is clearly a player with a lot of potential.

His very first goal for the Lightning came against the Clan when the teams met in October, the Clan coming away 6-4 winners on that night.

#2 Tim Wallace – F

The top points scorer for the Lightning at 32 (10 goals and 22 assists). Wallace has shown his ability against the Clan earlier this season when he scored a hattrick in the Lightning’s 6-1 home victory in November.

The 34-year-old American played 101 games in the NHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Islanders, Carolina Hurricanes and Tampa Bay Lightning.

Since November he has been playing double duty as a player-coach as he took charge of the team along with Ryan Lannon.

#3 Martin Mazanec – D

With Clay Anderson departing for the Kansas City Mavericks in the ECHL, there may be more of focus on the rest of the Milton Keynes defence. At 29-years-old, Mazanec is one of the veterans in a young team, and one of the players Wallace and Lannon will be looking to shoulder more responsibility.

Up until 2017, Mazanec played all his hockey in his native Czech Republic but he branched out to short spells in France and Slovakia before arriving at the Lightning in the summer.

It’s never an easy job being a defensemen for the team at the bottom of the league, 11 points, 77 penalty minutes and a +/- of -11. Mazanec will be hoping for more productivity in 2019.
