PANTHERS SIGN FINNISH WINGER "JUST IN CASE"

The GMB Nottingham Panthers have today signed 24-year-old Finnish winger Joonas Saari as potential injury cover.

Joonas is in Nottingham studying for a masters degree at university and the Panthers invited him to join in training. After assessments the coaching staff today decided to snag his signature.

Paperwork is now in place and he would be available for selection if needed. He will also be available for the Continental Cup campaign. He will travel with the team to Scotland this weekend where the Panthers play three games in three nights, starting on Friday in Dundee.
