Nottingham Panthers have signed Canadian winger Leigh Salters for the forthcoming Elite League season.

The 6'4" 24-year-old played in the East Coast Hockey League last season and at the AHL level.

Two years before that he had a full season in the AHL at Syracuse before joining Florida.

Head coach Corey Neilson, himself a former Florida player told the British Ice Hockey website: "Panthers had a reputation for team toughness last year and Leigh fits that mould and ticks other boxes too.

"He's a big strong winger and he will be a handful when he bears down on opposing defences around the Elite League.

"He is a top six ECHL forward, he will be a quality impact forward and we're pleased to get him, we've had great reports on what he can do."
