Hull Stingrays have signed Czech forward Frantisek Bakrlik.

The 28-year-old, who has experience in both North America and Europe, played with Stingrays coach Sylvain Cloutier at UDL club Adirondack Frostbite.

Cloutier said: "He was one of our key guys, a big power forward who plays physical and hits you hard.

"He has won championships in Poland and knows what it takes to win. I think he can do a great job for the team, he can be a 'go-to' guy for us."
