Swindon Wildcats have agreed a deal to keep Nottingham Panthers' right-wing Ollie Betteridge for next season.
The 18-year old spent the majority of the last two terms turning out for the Premier Ice Hockey League side while training with Elite League Nottingham.
He scored twice and provided 10 assists in 49 Wildcats appearances last term.
"It's great to have Ollie back. He was a big part of our team last year and is a big factor in deciding how we play," said head coach Ryan Aldridge.
