Nottingham Panthers: Jason Williams signing delights Corey Neilson

Williams has more than 450 NHL appearances, most notably with the Detroit Red Wings

Head coach Corey Neilson says signing Canadian forward Jason Williams will give Nottingham Panthers an "injection" of attacking skill they need.

The 36-year-old has played 455 games in the National Hockey League, plus 321 at American Hockey League level.

Neilson said: "He was a top-six forward in the NHL for a while. He has class and skill. He's ready to go, excited to be here and we are happy to have him."

Panthers are sixth in the Elite League after a poor season so far.

But they have reached the Super Final of the Continental Cup which will take place in Ritten, Italy in January.
