Invicta Dynamos will begin their assault on the league this weekend when they host last year’s play-off champions Chelmsford Chieftains.
But the Mos will be completing their season without netminder Andy Moffat, after he bowed out due to family reasons.
Coach Kevin Parrish (pictured) has been in the hunt for a replacement this week.
He said: "Andy has a new job and a new-born baby and he’s been struggling to cope with that and ice hockey.
"He has been excellent for us and last year I kept playing him more than I should have because there was nobody else capable of coming in. We wish him well."
David Wride has been competing for the netminder spot this season and Parrish will bring in another challenger this week.
He said: "We want to be able to rotate and I am not bringing in someone just to sit on the bench."
Invicta have played just six games so far in NIHL South Division 1 and trail leaders Romford by 10 points.
"Romford are sitting pretty with a 100% record and Isle of Wight aren’t too far behind but we’ve shown we can beat the top teams already," said Parrish.
Parrish has also lost the services of forward Dan Fudger, after he left through work commitments this week. Fudger made 176 appearances for Invicta, clocking up 99 points with 41 goals and 58 assists.
Parrish said: "We came to a mutual decision. I wish him every success in the future."
