Patrik Moisio came to Edinburgh Capitals to get more ice time and he could get his wish this weekend.

The Murrayfield men host mid-table Guildford Flames on Saturday and rejuvenated Dundee Stars on Sunday.

Moisio, who rejected two offers from Elite League rivals Coventry Blaze, is a player Capitals bosses are looking to.

They desperately want a return from the 25-year-old who has not found the net in seven games.

The Finnish winger has one assist to his name during that period and this weekend is crucial for Capitals coaching staff.

The club sit on nine points from 36 games and have lost their last two.
Co-coaches Jock Hay and Mike D’Orazio are desperate to finally get into double figures.

Flames are seventh in the 12-strong table with 42 points from 36 games in their first season in Britain’s top league.

They won 7-2 on their last visit but have, however, hit a slump having lost their last three games.

Dundee have improved significantly and are now in tenth place with 31 points from 35 stats and they have won their last two.

Chris Lawrence, the Tayside club’s captain, is set to make a return to action this weekend after being sidelined since September.

So, it’s a double bill for success-starved Capitals fans. Both games face-off at 6pm.

Moisio, incidentally, holds the record for the most penalty minutes handed out to a player in a single Finnish top-flight match.

And he ended his six-game spell at Coventry with a three-game suspension.

He collected one assist in his short stay in the Midlands so hopes to break his British duck and help his new teammates earn four points.

Elsewhere, Dundee host Fife Flyers on Saturday and the face-off here is 7pm while Braehead Clan visit Manchester Storm with a 7pm face-off.
