Nottingham Panthers have announced their second signing in 24 hours with the addition of forward Chris Capraro to their roster for 2013-14.
Coach Corey Neilson has been tracking the 29-year-old American for some time and he joins the Elite League champions after three years in Germany.
Neilson told the club's website: "This guy is an exciting forward.
"No-one I have had reports from had a bad word to say about Chris. I've finally got my man."
Capraro, who scored 110 points in 153 games in the ECHL prior to moving to Germany, added: "Panthers had a great year last season and from talking to the coach he has plans to do something similar next year.
"I want to be a part of that. It will be a battle every game and that's what I want to be involved in."
