Manchester Storm have signed Dutch international forward Nardo Nagtzaam on a four-week contract.
The 26-year-old boasts a wealth of North American and European experience, in addition to representing his country from U18 through to senior level.
Storm Player/Coach Omar Pacha said: “Last weekend hit us hard on the injury front, and with Adam Harding (broken foot) also still on the injury list, we needed to bring in some cover.
“I made contact with quite a few agents on Monday, and Nardo’s name came across my desk – I liked what I saw and was told.
“He has speed, a great shot and has played previously in the highly respected NCAA and EBEL.
“I’m glad we were able to get the deal done so quickly – Nardo arrives into Manchester on Thursday and should be in the line-up this weekend.
“This is a great opportunity for Nardo over the next month to impress, and he is determined to do so. I’m sure all Storm fans will welcome him to the Shelter with open arms.”
