Head coach Andrew Lord has signed a new deal to stay at the Cardiff Devils for at least the next three years.

After agreeing a two-year extension, the 31-year-old Canadian will lead the Elite League side right through to the end of the 2018-19 season.

Devils' managing director Todd Kelman said it had proved a popular decision.

"I told the guys and there was a lot of cheers and clapping. They all seem as pumped as I am to have completed this deal," he said.
