Cardiff Devils’ blueliner Mark Richardson will be back for his tenth season with the club.
Richardson was an ever-present last term, scoring four goals with 16 assists.
Player/Coach Andrew Lord said: “I don’t think this signing comes as a shock to anyone, he has been here for 10 years for a reason.
“Mark is as solid as they come in terms of a two-way defenseman – he skates so well and is great defensively.
“He is one of the most dialed in player in terms of keeping in shape and looking after himself that I have ever worked with.
“His consistency is his greatest asset for us, you just know what you are going to get every game from him. We are very pleased to have him back for another season.
“Richardson has served as one of the captains the last few seasons and leads by example. He brings dedication and a great work ethic to the rink every day, something that is infectious for his teammates.”
