Capitals sign Canadian forward

Edinburgh Capitals have signed forward Brandon Coccimiglio from Morzine-Avoriaz-Les Gets in France.

The Canadian previously enjoyed a prolific spell in the Central Hockey League (CHL) in the USA, notching 52 goals with 57 assists in 107 games.

Capitals’ Player/Coach Riley Emmerson said, “Brandon will bring a lot of speed and some grit to the club. He knows and has played with some of our existing players, so should settle into the team quickly.

“Adding Brandon to our roster is an exciting move by our club. Bringing in a player with his speed, work ethic and finish is only going to make us even more dangerous.

“From playing with Brandon in Arizona I know what he brings to the club. He is coming in excited and ready to better himself and the club as well.”

Coccimiglio is expected to make his Elite League debut on Thursday at Belfast Giants.
