Patrik Valcak has signed a new one-year contract with Manchester Storm.
The Czech forward bagged 15 goals with 40 assists in 60 games during his debut year in the Elite League.
Storm Player/Coach Omar Pacha said: “I’m delighted to have Val back in our line up ahead of the new season. He has size, skill and brings further toughness to our team.
“I have a clear role for him this upcoming season which we have discussed at length – he will be a physical presence for us mixed in with his playmaking attributes too.
“He gives me flexibility in my line-up, as he can also play on ‘D ‘which we saw on a few occasions last season.
“That flexibility, mixed in with Val’s hunger and desire to return to the Storm, made it a no-brainer for me to bring him back.”
