Stand by for the great British player merry-go-round.
Clubs are about to start losing and signing their home grown skaters - and that could mean Ashley Tait, released by Sheffield Steelers, goes back to Nottingham Panthers.
The league winners are about to lose Matthew Myers to Cardiff Devils and will want to replace him with a high-end Brit. But Rob Dowd won’t go there, Rob Farmer fancies a crack at the ECHL, Craig Peacock has eyed Denmark and Italy, and Ben Davies is staying in Cardiff.
That could leave the Panthers door open for veteran Tait, who had 10 seasons there.
