Guildford Flames have signed Canadian ‘D’ man Jesse Craige.
The 28-year-old won the French championship with Rapaces de Gap last season, contributing four goals with 32 assists in 58 games.
Flames’ boss Paul Dixon said: “The thing that will really stand out to our supporters when they get their first look at Jesse is how well he skates.
“When people talk about a mobile defenseman they are thinking of players like this.
“He is very effective at entering his own end, collecting pucks with efficiency, and getting his club turned around to go the other way.
“That skill has produced a pretty healthy dose of points from the back end over the years.
“We are really excited that we were able to finally come to a deal that puts Jesse in a Flames uniform this season.”
