Braehead Clan coach Pete Russell reckons new forward Scott Tanski will fit into the Elite League.

The 28-year-old is the newest face at the club as the Glasgow organisation continue to prepare for the 2018/19 season.

And Russell also believes the former Reading Royals man will make his Clan team better going forward.

“I believe Scott’s game will be suited to the EIHL and he will be effective at both end of the ice,” Russell said.

“All the feedback I’ve had regarding Scott has been nothing but positive on and off the ice.

“He is a good skater, works hard every shift and plays with high energy levels. Scott plays direct and gets his rewards for his hard work and playing with power.

“Scott is a two-way guy and a team guy first. He is the perfect depth guy and will make our team better.

“Off the ice, Scott is a great guy, awesome in the room and a player I know the Purple Army will love. He is a larger than life character.”

Tanski is the 11th player to commit to Braehead for the new season after arriving from the Royals, who play in the ECHL.

The Canadian is also a former South Carolina Stingrays and Orlando Solar Bears, where Guildford Flames’ Ian Watters was a team-mate.

Clan also revealed he’ll wear the number 41 jersey in the new campaign.
