Capitals sign former Clan goalie

Canadian stopper Travis Fullerton has agreed to become the Edinburgh Capitals’ netminder for the 2016/17 Elite League campaign.

The 28-year-old recorded a 91.9 save percentage in 15 games last season after signing as injury cover for Braehead Clan.

Fullerton said: “I’m very excited to have signed in Edinburgh for the upcoming season.

“The city is amazing and I’m excited by the group the club has put together this year, so for me it was an easy choice to make.

“As a player, I think my strengths are my competitiveness and consistency every game. I expect a lot out of myself, and being sort of an older guy in the room, I hope I can lead by example.

“The group of players coming to Edinburgh this year should be a very solid group. I know a couple of guys already and played against several of the guys in college.

“The fans should be very excited for the 16/17 season as I think we will surprise a lot of teams.”

Player/Coach Michal Dobron added: “The netminder is such an important position on a hockey team.

“We’ve worked hard to bring in a top netminder and Travis has proven quality – he played very well in this league last season.

“He also knows some of my team already so will fit in perfectly to what we are building here.

“I think this is a very big signing for the team and I’m looking forward to working with Travis.”
