JONAS Hoog said he is really glad to be back at the Swindon Wildcats, amid his search for 600 career points at the Link Centre.

After scoring two points – via a goal and an assist – in last Sunday’s 5-1 win over Invicta, Hoog enters Cats’ domestic break needing just one more goal to register his 200th marker for the Wiltshire club.

Similarly, the Swede requires just one more assist to put him onto 400 career assists with the Wildcats.

He record stretches back nearly a decade and was only interrupted by last season’s spell at Polish club Orlik Opole.

Asked if he had a point target in mind for the remainder of the season, the straight-talking forward was characteristically succinct with his response.

Hoog said: “Points? No. Trophies? Yes.”

The 32-year-old has vowed to give his all on his return while admitting the opportunity to join up with old friend Aaron Nell was too good to turn down.

He said: “I’m just going to try my best, so we can win our games.

“Me and Aaron (Nell) have been playing together for six years, so I was excited to be on the same line as him again.”

Since re-signing, Hoog has been part of the Wildcats team that has recorded back-to-back four-point weekends for the first time since October.

In addition, the diminutive forward has also accumulated seven points from his four games.

After scoring what he called a ‘lucky goal’ at home to MK Thunder last weekend, Hoog is keen to add to that tally of goals as he and his team mates look to close the gap on NIHL South One title rivals Peterborough Phantoms.

He said: “It’s always good to score.

“It was a bit of a lucky goal, but it feels good to score.”

“It was a big weekend for the team – we got a four-point weekend then and we want to do it again.

“We need to come out hard and play our best every game, so we can keep putting points on the board.

“It’s good for us to have a break now so we can regroup as we’ve had two tough weekends with Peterborough and Basingstoke.

“We’ll have a good week off and then we can come back even stronger.”
