Dundee Stars’ new signing Matt Carter could make his debut against his former team this weekend.

The former Nottingham Panthers winger, who played in the Continental Cup winning team in 2017, could be set for a return to the Motorpoint Arena for his new team after joining Omar Pacha’s side.

And the Stars coach outlined what the experienced 32-year-old will bring to his side after making further changes to his team.

“Matt is a player that is extremely hungry and he had great success in France,” Pacha said.  “He is able to find the net, his hockey IQ is very high and he has a great release.

“He is not afraid to go to the dirty areas in order to score goals and he will be a great addition to our squad.”

Carter has been playing most recently in Poland with Cracovia Krakow after joining them from Austrian side EHC Lustenau earlier in the season.

Since leaving the Panthers in 2017, Carter played in France with Epinal then Angers over two seasons before heading to Austria.

His signing is Stars’ second in a matter of days after signing Alex Schoenborn, who is yet to make his bow in Dundee colours.

Their arrivals has meant that forwards Elgin Pearce and Justin Maylan have been released with immediate effect as Pacha hopes to get a lift from his team, who are rooted at the bottom of the table.

The club said in a statement on their website: “We would like to thank both Justin and Elgin for their efforts both on and off the ice and everyone at the club wishes both players the best of luck in their future careers because both players are true professionals.”
