Nottingham Panthers have confirmed the return of Josh Tetlow, Joseph Hazeldine, and Jordan Kelsall for the 2018/19 season.
Tetlow featured in 29 Elite League games for the Panthers last season, with a further six appearances in the Challenge Cup plus four Champions Hockey League games, with the 6’6” blue liner quickly settling in to life in the UK’s top flight.
Due to injury, forward Kelsall was limited to just 23 league games in total in 2017/18, splitting time between the Panthers and the NIHL Swindon Wildcats.
In 6 Elite League contests, Kelsall scored 2 goals, adding a further six goals and 13 points in 17 NIHL games for the Wildcats.
Both Teltow and Kelsall were members of the GB Under 20 side which won Bronze at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championships (Division 2A)
Defenceman Joseph Hazeldine also split the year between the Panthers and Swindon, appearing in six Elite League games and 31 NIHL games; helping the GB under 18 side win gold at the IIHF Under 18 World Championships (Division 2A).
For 2018/19, Hazeldine will be on a two-way deal between the Panthers and the NIHL Telford Tigers, with whom he is expected to spend much of the season.
