Finnish forward Otto Nieminen joined the Panthers for the 2023-24 season from Odense Bulldogs after leading the Danish league in scoring with 25 goals last season.

Nieminen has seven years' experience in Liiga, Finland's top flight, spending the majority of his time with TPS Turku after coming through their junior system.

He also spent time with Pelicans in Finland before scoring 30 points (15+15) for Slovakian side HK Spisska Nova Ves in 2021-22.

The former Finland Under-20 international is no stranger to Nottingham, playing for Turku at the Motorpoint Arena in the 2017-18 Champions League.

The Panthers are excited to announce that Otto Nieminen is returning to the club for the 2024-25 campaign.

The 27-year-old had a fantastic first year with the Panthers, playing all 54 Elite League games last season and leading the team in goals (25) and points (52).

He was named Fans' Player of the Year and was the joint-winner of the MVP with Hugo Roy which was selected by the coaching staff.
