The Manchester Storm have moved quickly to ensure they will be at full strength for Saturday’s game against the Steelers at the Fly DSA Arena.
With import Kyle Hope leaving for a new team in Denmark the Storm have quickly acted to sign Croatian defenseman Ivan Sijan.
The 29-year-old is no stranger to Elite League action after playing 39 games with the Milton Keynes Lightning last season, where he scored four goals and assisted on another 11.
The 6’3″ Croatian played the majority of his hockey for home town side Medveščak Zagreb in the EBEL, with spells in Scandinavia sandwiched in between. He’s also represented his country at international level as high as the Division 1 World Championships.
Steelers are still awaiting news on Josef Hrabal who was injured in Cardiff last Saturday.
