Andy McKinney has agreed a third season with Guildford Flames.
The 25-year-old forward was an ever-present last season as Flames claimed the EPL Cup and end-of-season play-off title.
“To win two trophies is incredible because I really hate to lose and I think I show that with my play,” he said.
“I cannot wait for September – putting on another spectacle at the Spectrum. I really love living in Guildford and the Surrey area – I’ve made a lot of great friends outside of hockey, which makes me feel at home.
“I don’t believe I’ve reached my full potential, and I hope to add more next season.”
Head Coach Paul Dixon added: “Andy brings a really valuable competitive nature to our line-up.”
“Some things can’t be measured by stats, and his intense, sandpaper approach to the physical contribution he is able to make is one of those things.
“He also has back-to-back 15 goal seasons, so he’s able to be a big part of the secondary scoring that any team needs in order to have success.
“We were able to get results this past season thanks to a lot of different pieces coming together at the right time.
“Andy was an important part of that, and we are happy to welcome him back for a chance to help us build on last season’s achievements.”
