Nottingham Panthers player-coach Corey Neilson has signed 6ft 6ins centre Bruce Graham.
Graham has spent the last three seasons with the Allen Americans, scoring 251 points in the Central Hockey League.
A former second-round draft pick of the New York Rangers, Graham, 26. also has AHL experience, and is a former team-mate of Panthers forward Jordan Fox.
Neilson told the club website: "He's a handful. He's a massive man with silky soft hands, good and good vision."
