We can confirm the re-signing
of Jamie Randall, Nidal Phillips and Edward Knaggs for the coming season. Jamie
Randall once again brings his wealth of experience and 100% commitment on ice to
the team, he has a calming influence on our young players and can be relied on
to chip in with points over the season. Nidal spent most of last season with MK
Lightning providing defensive cover, he now returns with his fast physical style
to add strength to the Thunder defence. Ed Knaggs, had a fantastic first senior
season with Thunder, his performances recognised at the end of season awards
with both the Best Defenceman and Most Improved awards. His achievement has
earned him a two way contract with the Lightning.
MK Thunder have made their
first import signing for next season. Defenceman Zsolt Mastaleriu joins Thunder
having played last season in Oxford. The 26 year old Romanian international has
represented his country at two world championships in 2014 (in the same group as
GB in Lithuania) and 2015, and has five years MOL Liga experience having played
for ASC Corona Brasov and Steaua Bucuresti before coming to the UK.
A number of fixtures have changed
due to unavailability of ice at MK. This meant moving four home games and one
away game. Please see the revised list in the Fixtures section.
