MK Lightning have confirmed the signing of defender Matt Nickerson from Belfast Giants.
Lightning boss Pete Russell said: “I’m delighted to have added Matt to our line-up for the coming season.
“When I knew he was available we did all we could to make it happen. He is a great addition to our organisation – to add a person with such experience and character was a no-brainer.
“Matt is the full package. He skates well for such a big man, is solid in his own end, plays hard in tough areas, makes a good first pass, picks good spots to join the rush and of course he takes care of his teammates when required.
“He is a huge character both on and off the ice – a great teammate and will be 100 percent a fans’ favourite.
“Our partnership with the University of Buckingham helped us to put this deal in place and Matt will be a great ambassador for both parties.”
