The Fantastic Mr Fox returns

Panthers announced their third import for the 2012/13 season as it was revealed this evening that Jordan Fox will be returning [Panthers website link]

An integral part of Panthers double winning success last season, Fox proved his commitment to the team by playing the final three play-off games with a slipped disc in his back. The guy must have been playing through unbelievable pain but still played his normal game, giving everything he had in pursuit of play-off glory. These are the sort of players I want on the team.

He will also bring a great amount of skill back to the squad. He was part of an incredible line with Benedict & DAB, and could also put the puck in the net, who can forget the incredible goal he scored against Cardiff in the season opener?

Coach Corey Neilson said of his latest re-signing “What can you say. Jordan is a leader on the ice and in the locker room. He’s a winner. We spoke at length before he left and now those talks have come to fruition. He had offers, obviously in this country and abroad, but he wanted to come back and that was half the battle. We loved having him here last season and he knows what to expect of us and he knows what we expect of him. It’s another key signing and we’ve got more, hopefully, in the pipeline and they could be finalised sooner rather than later.”

A key re-signing for me. I hope we continue to see more captures of this calibre as the close season continues.
