The Nottingham Panthers have signed 20-year-old British forward Logan Neilson.

Neilson played for the Nottingham Ice Hockey Club as a junior, representing the under-15s for two seasons before moving to North America to develop his career.

In three years with West Coast Renegades - at under-15s, under-16s and under-18s - he scored more than 200 points at over a point per game.

The 6'5" forward split last season between Corpus Christi IceRays (North American Hockey League) and Old Grizzlys (Alberta Junior Hockey League) in two of the top junior leagues in North America.

In 2021-22, Neilson finished as leading scorer at the Under-20 World Championship Division II Group A in Romania as Great Britain won the bronze medal.

Jonathan Paredes, Panthers Head Coach, said: "Logan has a great shot and is good around the net, as well as being strong on the boards.

"He's a player that we feel that can develop within the group and add value in the line-up with his size.

"His love for the game and work ethic is something that really is exciting and we are looking forward to working with him."

Neilson said: "I'm really looking forward to joining the Panthers and it's a club very close to my heart.

"I felt like I was ready to come back home. Talking to Jonathan (Paredes) and Omar (Pacha), it seems like a really good opportunity.

"There is no better place to play than here. I had offers from other teams but as soon as Nottingham came into the picture, there was no contest."
