Jade Galbraith is back

Some in Sheffield were telling anyone who’d listen that Jade Galbraith was about to sign a contract with the Sheffield Steelers. WRONG! It has been announced tonight that perhaps the most talented player in the Elite League is returning to the Panthers for a third straight season and many sighs of relief will be blown throughout the fanbase [Official Panthers Website Release]. After a mixed reception to his return last year, he would have been top of most people’s lists of ‘imports I’d like to see return’ this time.
There can be no doubt that Galbraith showed his commitment to the Panthers. He returned from the summer break over two stones lighter, worked hard at both ends of the rink and was rewarded with figures of 25+69 for 94 points. He repaid the faith that coach Corey Neilson showed in him and Neilson has rewarded him with a new contract.
Personally I’m delighted, Galbraith has had a stellar season, he has the best stick handling skills in the league in my opinion, emphasised by a quite sensational goal in Sheffield at Christmas. How many Panthers players has Dave Simms enthused over so much? (No wonder he wanted him at the Steelers!)
Corking start to Neilson’s recruitment process, let’s hope there’s more announcements of this ilk to follow.
