Guildford Flames have confirmed the signing of Finnish forward Tuomas Santavuori.
The 31-year-old has played over 450 games in Finland’s top flight, in addition to icing in Germany, Kazakhstan and Denmark.
Head Coach Paul Dixon said: “We are looking to improve our team in any way we can, and Tuomas has a résumé with a pedigree we can’t ignore.
“He sees the ice well, and should be a really complementary player with some of our existing line-up.
“He has put up some very impressive production numbers consistently in one of the world’s finest leagues for many, many seasons.
“We hope to get the paperwork sorted out in time for our game in Peterborough on Saturday.”
