BRAEHEAD CLAN have confirmed that Canadian forward Bobby Chaumont will be making a return to the club next season.
Chaumont was part of the Glasgow side’s inaugural campaign two years ago before he made a switch to
Central Hockey League outfit Fort Wayne Komets where he helped his side lift the Presidents Cup.
However, after averaging a point a game last term, the player is delighted to be back in Clan colours and is aiming to play his part in a revamped line-up when the season gets underway.
He said: “I am very excited to be returning to Glasgow and playing for the Clan. The fans made my season there very memorable and I look forward to another great season.”
“I think Clan coach Jordan Krestanovich is doing a fantastic job at recruiting guys and putting this team together and I am really looking forward to playing for him this season.
“It will be great to catch up with some of my former team-mates and get to know the new guys.
“I am looking forward to coming back and getting the season under way.”
Krestanovich is thrilled with his new arrival and is hoping to help the forward take his game to another level. He said: “I’m very excited to have signed Bobby this year.
“I’ve been talking to him since I first took the job as Clan player-coach.
“ He is a big strong power forward who skates very well. He not only won a championship last year with Fort Wayne Komets but he was also in the top 10 in the league in scoring.
“I’ve played on a line with Bobby so I know first hand how dangerous he can be.
“He was a good asset to the Clan in season one, and I think he will have a great year with us this season.”
