Nottingham Panthers defenceman Steve Lee has signed a new deal to return to the club for a fourth season.
The 21-year-old first joined the Panthers in 2009 after a season in the EPL with Guildford Flames.
"I am thrilled to be back. We had a great year last year and I'm looking forward to another great year with the Panthers," said Lee.
"He thrives on responsibility and he takes it on board when it comes his way," added coach Corey Neilson.
"We're very happy to have him back in the line-up. Steve has had some fantastic games for us already and the potential is there for even greater things."
The re-signing of Lee comes on the back of Monday's announcement that fellow defenceman after a season with Milton Keynes Kings in the EPL.
