Your Peterborough Phantoms are delighted to announce the signing of free scoring forward, Nathan Salem!
Salem is no stranger to the Phantoms organisation, having scored 21 goals and 31 assists in 31 games for the club in the 2017/18 season.
He began his career in the North East in Sunderland and Whitley and has added Newcastle, Edinburgh, Telford, Solway, Hull and the Sheffield Steeldogs to his hockey CV. He’s also represented Great Britain at U18 and U20 level.
Last season, he scored 27 goals and 23 assists for 50 points in 34 games for the Steeldogs, adding to the 56 points he scored in the season prior. He’s scored comfortably over a point per game during his time in Sheffield and will be looking to bring that scoring prowess back to Peterborough on his TWO YEAR DEAL!
“I didn’t expect to be back here but I am really excited to get back in a Phantoms jersey and be back with the boys. I’m looking forward to playing for Slava again and helping the team to win. It’ll be great to be playing in front of the Phantoms fans and have them on my side again!! Hopefully we can get back in the running for some trophies!
Phantoms Head Coach, Slava Koulikov, said: “I’m really happy to have Nathan back with the Phantoms. He was a really big player for us in his season here before and I think he’ll bring good leadership to our young team, as well as hopefully being a threat in the offensive zone. He’s a physical player and one the fans enjoyed watching when he was last with us so we’re excited to have him back!
Our thanks go to Ali and the team at the Sheffield Steeldogs for their help in allowing us to get the move completed in such a swift fashion.
