THE NOTTINGHAM Panthers are planning to shake up the roster.

Results have not matched expectations and although performances have shown positive signs at times the coaching staff have decided to make some moves.

The club is always on the look out for new talent and with Alexis Loiseau announcing his retirement last week recruitment plans had already been stepped up. Now the club has parted company with Jens Jakobs, the Swedish forward brought in during the summer.

Director of Hockey Gui Doucet said of the latest move: “We want to thank Jens for his efforts. Things haven’t worked out for him here but by no means are we suggesting he’s to blame for any of our recent results. It just wasn't a great fit for either party and the relationship has come to an end. He is a thoroughly professional individual and the club wishes him well as he moves back home to Sweden to look for his next move.

“We’re talking to a few options right now, and if we want to change things we need to have vacancies to fill. To that end we now have a couple of slots up for grabs and whether we bring in two new faces or possibly even more remains to be seen. We’ve set the bar high, as the Panthers always do, and we will do whatever it takes to bring success to this club.”
