Nottingham Panthers have signed experienced Canadian defenceman Mike Berube for the 2014/15 season.
Coach Corey Neilson was thrilled to recruit the 26-year-old left-hander.
Neilson told the club website: "He has five full years of pro hockey under his belt. He plays with an edge and sticks up for his team-mates when necessary.
"He knows his role and we know he'll make good simple puck decisions, play hard against skilled players, block shots and kill penalties."
