Fife Flyers sign ex-Dundee Stars player-coach Dan Ceman

Ice hockey

Elite League newcomers Fife Flyers have signed former Dundee Stars player-coach Dan Ceman.

Canadian Ceman was released by the Tayside club last week, with Stars sitting second bottom of the league.

However, the 38-year-old, who topped the Stars' scoring charts, has now joined a Kirkcaldy side who are propping up the Elite League table.

"As soon as Dan was released by Stars he was an obvious target for me," said Flyers head coach Todd Dutiaume.

"I know the type of player he is and he is an easy fit for us.

"He is a typical guy we target as a player for this organisation, he is a hard worker, a natural goal scorer and, with the addition of him and the new defenceman we have signed and waiting on a work permit for, that takes us to nine imports and, hopefully, a very competitive hockey club."

Ceman, who is in line to make his debut tonight against Coventry Blaze said: "Todd contacted me as soon as the news of my release from Stars was known.

"I remember being here with Stars and how the building was noisy and the passion of the fans and I am looking forward to playing for them and my team-mates.

"Although I have played pro hockey for a long time I will admit to having a few nerves about tonight's game but I'll be pumped up for it."
