Flyers sign prolific winger

Experienced French Canadian winger Sébastien Thinel has signed for Fife Flyers.

The 35-year-old has been a consistent scorer throughout his career, averaging well over a point per game in the CHL for Odessa Jackalopes and Missouri Mavericks.

He spent last season with Grenoble in France, scoring 15 goals with 17 assists in 38 games.

Thinel said: “I’m very excited to join the Fife Flyers – I’ve only heard good things about coach (Todd) Dutiaume and the Flyers organisation.

“I’m looking forward to hitting the ice in front of the Flyers fans and getting the season underway.”

Dutiaume added: “I’m pleased to add Sébastien to the team. He is another experienced guy with good size, that will strengthen our right wing.

“He comes highly recommended by his peers and I’m sure the Fife fans will like him.

“We have more players to announce over the coming days. I’m glad to be back in Kirkcaldy after the summer and I’m excited to get the new season underway.”
