Cescon returns to Elite League

Dundee Stars have signed ex-Coventry Blaze and Braehead Clan defenseman Craig Cescon.

He first came to prominence in the Ontario Hockey League as a championship winner with Peterborough Petes in 2006, before gaining extensive experience in North America and Europe.

Last season the 29-year-old skater iced for Morzine-Avoriaz-Les Gets in the French League.

Stars boss Marc LeFebvre said: “One of our key priorities this off-season was to improve our back end – Craig makes us better defensively.

“He brings a pronounced style of play and will help all the young guys grow. The fans are going to enjoy Craig as a player.

“He is a good person and a brilliant guy to work with. He is team oriented and very much a ‘we’ over ‘me’ type of skater.

“We think Craig will help the club’s playing side further develop. In particular he will be a positive influence on the young players on the roster.”

Cescon added: “I’m excited to return to the Elite League. I really enjoyed playing for Marc (LeFebvre) in Coventry which made my decision easy.

“I can’t wait to throw on the Stars jersey next season and compete for some silverware.”
