Nottingham Panthers forward Jordan Kelsall has signed a new deal to return to the club for a fifth successive season.
The 23-year-old first iced for the Panthers in 2017-18 on a two-way deal with NIHL side Swindon Wildcats.After spending the following campaign on-loan with Dundee Stars, Kelsall played his first full season with the Panthers in 2019-20 and has gone on to make over 270 appearances for the club
“It was a very easy decision and I’m really excited to be back for another season,” said Kelsall.
“It was always my dream to play for my home-town club and it’s a great honour to still be doing the job I love here in Nottingham.
“Everyone in the locker room last season knows it should have been better and for me personally I want to play a part in a better season next year.
“My sole focus now is to get ready for next season and right some wrongs from last year.”
Panthers Head Coach, Jonathan Paredes, said: “Jordan has been a huge part of the Panthers for many years now.
“He continues to develop his game and showed last season that he can also play in defence, but just as vital is the off-ice contribution he brings.
“Jordan knows the club inside out and knows what being a Panther is all about. That experience is so important as we look to build this club to compete next season.”
