Telford Tigers are delighted to reveal that they have secured the services of #13 Joe Hazeldine on a two way contract with Elite League Nottingham Panthers. Joe, 17, played on a two way contract last season with Nottingham Panthers and Swindon Wildcats, playing 31 games and contributing 10 points for Swindon as well as representing GB at U18s.
Tom Watkins, Head Coach and General Manager said, “I’m delighted to reach an agreement with the Panthers to bring Joe Hazeldine to Telford on a two way agreement and must thank Gary Moran and Rich Chernomaz for making this happen. Joe is a very talented young defenceman and impressed me every time we played the Wildcats last season. He has got good size, bags of potential and I have no doubt he will progress to play full time with the Panthers in the Elite League, but for now he needs those playing minutes playing here in all situations to aid his progression. I think our fan base will be very surprised when they see him play.”
Nottingham Panthers will have first call on his services throughout the season, but we hope to see plenty of him in a Tigers’ jersey.
Joe said, ‘It’s a new opportunity for me and somewhere different to progress and get to the next level. Telford was the right fit and I can’t wait to get started.’
Joe’s own and loan shirts are available to order now for £100 each (Home and Away). Please see the own and loan registration page for more details and to register.
