Swindon Wildcats have signed defenceman Paul Swindlehurst for the forthcoming EPL season.
The 18-year-old has most recently played for Slough Jets but has also had spells in Manchester Phoenix and Sheffield Steelhawks' youth teams.
Coach Ryan Aldridge told the club website: "Paul comes highly recommended by everyone I have spoken to.
"He is a big strong lad who moves the puck well and is very strong all over the ice."
Meanwhile, this season's EPL fixtures have been released with Swindon starting their campaign against Sheffield Steeldogs on Friday, 23 September.
