Ice hockey

Edinburgh Capitals have bolstered their squad by signing former Czech international defender Michal Dobron.

Dobron won last season's Slovakian Extraliga with Slovan Bratislava and has three Czech titles from his time with HC Karlovy Vary.

Caps player/coach Richard Hartmann was happy to have signed a player with 589 appearances in the Czech Extraliga.

"We have been waiting for a player of Michal's calibre and I am sure the wait will be justified," he said.

"There is no doubt we have a very solid player in Michal and his presence, leadership and experience will not only make us a better team but he will help get the best out of our younger players."
