THE NOTTINGHAM Panthers have added 27-year-old defenceman Dylan Olsen for the upcoming campaign.

The six feet two inch, 223 pounds defenceman shoots left and, like Brett Perlini before him, will be following in his father’s footsteps when he dons the Panthers’ jersey.

Darryl played for Panthers in season 96-97 and was a cup winner, as he helped the side lift the Autumn Cup.

Father Darryl had a single game in the NHL… son Dylan was a first round draft pick of Chicago, 28th overall, and went on to play 124 games in “the show” with Chicago and Florida.

Last year Dylan played in the East Coast Hockey League (Adirondack, 30 points in 67 games) and the AHL (Binghamton).

He has 222 AHL games on his resume having also played at Rockford, San Antonio and Portland.

Dylan won a silver medal with Team Canada Under 20s, at the World Championships, and played for Canada at Under 18 level as well as winning championships in juniors and at university.

Panthers’ head coach Rich Chernomaz says he’s excited by the latest signing news, and believes his squad is more than taking shape for the 2018-19 season already.
