Guildford Flames have confirmed that defenceman Jez Lundin has returned to the club ahead of the 2019/20 season.
Lundin, 31, first joined the club in 2009 after a stint with Newcastle Vipers, and has since gone on to play 616 games for the Flames, the fourth most in the club’s history.
Guildford Head Coach Paul Dixon said: “What more can you say about a guy who has pulled the shirt on more than 600 times over the years? He will take on any role we ask if it will help this team have success. He works hard, takes care of his fitness and he goes out there ready to compete.”
The club also announced that Great Britain under-20 forward Joshua Waller will return for a second season with the club.

Dixon was delighted that the youngster will be returning: “Joshua forced us to give him more ice time last season as the year went on because of the way he played.”
“He not only earned the opportunity to come back, but the chance to play in a more prominent role that will increase his, and the club’s, contribution expectations.
“He is a skilled player and a good skater, and it will be exciting to have a chance to watch his continued progression with us.”
