Neilson said: “The call to come back to Nottingham was strong. I am looking forward to the challenge.

“I have been watching Panthers as a fan from afar for five years now, doing my stuff in different countries and trying to improve myself.

“I saw that Panthers were struggling a little bit and I wanted to be part of that solution. I want things to be better. I love the Nottingham Panthers, I always have - ever since I walked through the door. I think this is a great opportunity to take some positive strides.”
