27 year old can play in Defence of Offensive
Hull Stingrays have confirmed the signing of Canadian Ryan Hand for the 2012/13 Elite League campaign.
The 27-year-old can play defence or forward, and spent last season with Texas Brahmas in the Central Hockey League.
Player-coach Sylvain Cloutier said: "I am extremely excited to have Hand on board. The guy competes, he works hard and battles for his team-mates.
"He will bring a physical part to our team that we haven't had in a few years, it’s a great addition to our team and he can play both forward and ‘D’. He will be one of our leaders and he will hold guys accountable.”
Hand joins Cloutier, Jereme Tendler, Ben Bowns, Chris Sykes, Janis Ozolins, Jason Silverthorn, Shane Lovdahl and Tomas Valecko on next season’s roster.
