Russian forward Yevgeni Fyodorov has signed for Edinburgh Capitals.
The 35-year-old, who was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in 2000, has played over 700 games in the top tier of hockey in Russia.
Fyodorov said: “I have heard the Capitals have built a strong squad over the summer.
“I’m excited to come to the club and I want to make a big impact on the ice. I look forward to arriving in the city next month.”
Player/Coach Michal Dobron added: “We were offered Fyodorov and took time to research him as a player and individual.
“Scott (Neil) and I agreed he sounded a great addition. His experience in one of the top leagues in the world mean he is another player who has the ability to make a big impact at the Capitals.
“He will fit in well with what we are building at the club, and having Vorobyev already can only help.
“He’s a determined player who will play hard and who can play in any position on my front line.
“The Capitals are attracting players of a high calibre to the club this summer – this is another hugely important signing for our club.”
