Defenceman Tom Norton has re-signed with Nottingham Panthers for next season following a season with Milton Keynes in the English Hockey League.

Nottingham-born Norton, 21, told the club website: "It's my hometown club. I had some spells on the roster in the past and loved every minute of it.

"When the chance came to return full-time I grabbed it. It's a great club."

Player coach Corey Neilson added: "Notz is a great kid and potentially a great player. He has a big future."
