Matthew Myers has been named as the new captain of The Nottingham Panthers.

A vote took place this week amongst the players and Myers, who stood in for Stevie Lee last season, will wear the C for the 2022-23 campaign.

Myers said: "We did a vote earlier this week and it's always nice to get the vote of your peers. It's an honour to be Nottingham Panthers captain, it's really good.

"I was stand-in captain, caretaker captain I call it, for Steve. It was something I didn't really want to do last year because of course we wanted Stevie to be in the line-up."

Following the vote, this season's alternate captains have been confirmed as Mike Caruso, Mathieu Gagnon and Jeremy Welsh.

Myers added: "Those guys have got lots of experience and are big characters around the dressing room.

"They will help out with the leadership, but I think we will have leadership right throughout the line-up and that will help us this year."

Head Coach, Gary Graham, said: "I couldn't be happier with the decision by the boys to select Matthew as captain.

"The other guys will make excellent alternate captains and I think we have a real strong captaincy group.

"Even the players who haven't been named, we have so many guys with experience - and some have been leaders and winners on other teams."
