Manchester Storm head coach Ryan Finnerty believes latest signing Chris Auger can contribute on any line for the club.

The 29-year-old returns to the Elite League after a season with Fife Flyers in 2014/15 before returning to North America for two seasons.

And Finnerty admits Auger was a player he admired when he was the head coach at Braehead Clan.

“I watched Auger play a lot when he was in Fife and I liked his compete level so I felt we needed another guy up the middle that can score goals,” he said.

“Chris is responsible in all three zones and can contribute on any line. I believe he will be a strong addition to our line-up and I look forward to working with him this season.”

Auger made 52 appearances in Kirkcaldy, scoring 19 goals and picking up 51 points for the Flyers under Todd Dutiaume.

He went to ECHL side Brampton Beast and stayed there for two seasons, bar a short spell at Atlanta Gladiators and picked up just over 70 points in 120+ appearances.

Auger becomes the 15th signing for Storm ahead of the new season and will wear the #61 jersey.
