Plews pens two-year Capitals deal

Tyler Plews has signed a new two-year contract with Edinburgh Capitals.

The 18-year-old ‘D’ man progressed through the Fife junior system before joining the Capitals last summer. During an impressive debut year he played in 53 Elite League games.

Plews said: “I had a good season last year – I really enjoyed playing for the Capitals.

“It didn’t go quite to plan for the team, but I felt I played well in my first season in the Elite League.

“I now want to focus on improving and Edinburgh is perfect for that. I’m combining playing with a two year Sports HND in Edinburgh, so signing up for the next two seasons is perfect for me.

“I can combine my sporting and educational development in tandem.”

Player/Coach Michal Dobron added: “I’ve heard great things about Tyler – I’m told he had a strong first season having stepped up to Elite level.

“He’s a quality young Scottish defenseman who plays with aggression and I think he will prove an important player for us.

“I’m looking forward to playing alongside him next season.”
