Manchester Storm have signed winger Luke Moffatt for the 2017/18 season.

Moffat, who was selected in the seventh round (197th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft by Colorado Avalanche, spent last season with French side Chamonix-Morzine where he registered 15 goals and 31 points in 42 games.

Prior to his year in France, Moffat spent time in Italy, Australia, Norway and the SHL as well as appearing in 148 NCAA games as a member of the University of Michigan Wolverines.

“I’m really happy to have secured Luke’s signature ahead of next season. I did a lot of reference checks on him, and everything we got back was very positive as a player and team mate.” Storm head coach Ryan Finnerty said.

“He is a really good skater with excellent offensive ability, and plays a good two-way game. His resume is a good one, and I expect him to do really well in his first season in the Elite League.

“I love this time of year, it’s really exciting building a team and talking to numerous players all around the world as we try to get all the parts to the puzzle in place.

“I will leave no stone unturned to ensure we get a really competitive team on the ice. I’m really happy with the business we’ve done so far, and I’m sure the team we recruit will grip the imagination of the people in Manchester next season. The Storm Shelter is going to be a tough place for opposition teams to visit, that’s for certain.”
