The big #45 began his career in his hometown of Cardiff, coming through the junior system in the Welsh capital. But despite a handful of senior appearances for the Cardiff Devils, his first taste of regular mens hockey was with the Swindon Wildcats in 2014/15.
The former Great Britain U18 and U20 International spent three seasons in Swindon, before returning home to ice for the Cardiff Fire in the old NIHL1 South.
It was a tough year with the Fire, but Buglass’ potential wasn’t doubted by Phantoms Head Coach, Slava Koulikov, and Callum signed on the dotted line in Peterborough before the 2018/19 season.
He’s another who has progressed game on game, year on year under the stewardship of Koulikov, and re-signs off the back of a career high 26 points from defence last term.
Callum said: “I’m extremely happy to be back. The boys in the room & Slava always make it an easy decision to stay. Off ice it’s going to be an interesting year starting university as well as hockey, but I’m already in preparations ready for next season, so individually can start off well & can help the team get the start to the season that we all are aiming for. Last year was a big step for the club with the new owners / directors & I’m really looking forward to seeing how much we progress again this year. Thanks to the fans for the nice comments about the re-signing at awards night & look forward to seeing them pack the building out again next season!”
“Callum is a great guy and a great hockey player. We knew when he came in a few years ago that we were getting a good player, but his progression since then has been unbelievable. He was one of my picks for Coaches Player of the Year this year because he had a fantastic, consistent season. I’ve said previously I think we’ve got the best top four defence in the league and Callum is part of that. I’m really glad I’ll be able to call on him for the next three years!” Said Slava Koulikov.
