Forward Kruise Reddick has agreed a new two-year deal with Guildford Flames. 

The 27-year-old scored 27 goals and 66 points in 54 Elite League games for the Flames last season, placing him 8th overall in both scoring and goals, adding a further two goals and seven points in eight Challenge Cup games, as the Surrey side reached the quarter-final stage.

“I am very excited and honoured to return to Guildford for another season,” said Reddick.  

“Having the success we did last year really made me want to come back and build on that. Guildford is a great place to play, and I am very excited to be playing in front of all the great fans we have.”

Reddick joined the Flames from Swedish Allsvenskan side HC Vita Hästen last summer, but has also played in the ECHL and WHL as well as spending five years at the University of Alberta, serving as captain during two of those seasons.

“Kruise had a terrific year for us.” Flames Head Coach Paul Dixon said.

“His skating skills and ability to see the ice were a big part of the success of his line, and he really helped set a foundation for the team’s overall competitive attitude.

“When you work with him everyday you notice his leadership qualities, his desire to win and have team success, and just the overall character of the person Kruise is beyond just playing hockey.

“He is the kind of player that others want to play with, and we are exceptionally happy that he has chosen to be back here when the new season gets going in September.”
