Braehead Clan have confirmed the signing of netminder Travis Fullerton.
The 28-year-old arrives as cover for the injured Chris Holt, who will be out of action for the next few weeks.
Fullerton moves to Glasgow after spending his career to date in North America, most recently with LNAH side Rivière-du-Loup 3L, where he made 17 appearances this season.
He previously played in the ECHL with Elmira Jackals – where one of his team-mates was current Clan forward Thomas Nesbitt – and Las Vegas Wranglers.
Head Coach Ryan Finnerty says he was delighted to fill a key position so quickly after learning the extent of Holt’s injury and has backed Fullerton to make his mark on the Elite League.
“After we learned the seriousness of Holt’s injury, we had to move quickly to bring in a replacement and I’m pleased we’ve been able to do that,” said Finnerty.
“Netminder is a key position in any team and filling the void left was a difficult task, but with Travis coming in I’m confident he will have no problem adapting to the team and the league.
“Travis may play against Dundee on Thursday and will have to hit the ice running with the tough schedule we have at the moment and I believe he’ll have no problem doing that.
“All we can do is wish Chris well as he recovers from his injury and it’s about moving on with the games we have coming up.”
