Jakobs leaves Nottingham Panthers

The Nottingham Panthers have announced that Swedish forward Jens Jakobs has left the club.

The 34-year-old, prior to joining the Panthers, has three times helped his teams win promotion and is a past winner of the European Trophy which preceded the Champions Hockey League.

Jakobs will return to Sweden to search for a new club.

“We want to thank Jens for his efforts. Things haven’t worked out for him here but by no means are we suggesting he’s to blame for any of our recent results. It just wasn’t a great fit for either party and the relationship has come to an end,” Director of Hockey Gui Doucet said.

“Jens is a thoroughly professional individual and the club wishes him well as he moves back home to Sweden to look for his next move.

“We now have a couple of slots up for grabs and whether we bring in two new faces, or possibly even more, remains to be seen. We will do whatever it takes to bring success to this club.”
