American forward Shayne Stockton has agreed a third season with Fife Flyers.
The 28-year-old enjoyed an impressive debut year with Fife, scoring 24 goals with 28 assists in 62 games.
Stockton’s second season in the Elite League lasted just 14 games due to a troublesome lower body injury and he say’s he’s eager to repay the club’s faith in him next term.
“I’m really excited to get back to Fife and play hockey again – I’ve really enjoyed my time playing for the Flyers and looking forward to the opportunity to come back,” said Stockton.
“Not being able to play much this past season was really difficult and I can’t wait to get back to playing again.
“I feel extremely fortunate that the Flyers organisation hasn’t given up on me because of the injury. I’m doing my best to prepare to come back and help this hockey club succeed.
“I appreciate the support the fans have given me and I look forward to get back to Kirkcaldy for another season.”
Assistant coach Jeff Hutchins added: “Todd (Dutiaume) and I are very happy to have Shayne back with us for the new season. When Shayne went down injured he was arguably one of our better players at the time.
“Shayne is an extremely reliable player at both ends of the ice, he does a lot of the little things right.
“Off the ice he is a great guy to have in the dressing room – he is very positive and easy going, and well-liked by his teammates.
“We are excited to be welcoming Shayne back to Kirkcaldy to have the opportunity to work with him once again.”
