Slovakian forward Martin Cingel needs no introduction to the fans here in Edinburgh. Martin has played for the Capitals in eleven seasons out of the fourteen he has spent in the UK. This season 'Cingi' has signed as injury cover whilst combining the role of SNL Head Coach.
Martin will bring a wealth of experience to the roster and to the role as coach of the SNL Capitals. Martin will train with the Elite League Capitals and can slot into the line up as required through the season, although his primary focus is on the development of the SNL Capitals roster.
Scott Neil said, "Martin Cingel has been a magnificent servant to this club over the years. He's been part of the fabric of the club, and he's participated in over 500 games and was Club Captain for most of that time. Martin is a great Capital, and I'm pleased to hand to him the responsibility of running the SNL team to develop more great Capitals. He has made Edinburgh his home, and we are pleased to welcome him back to the club. I'm committed to developing homegrown talent. I'm on record as saying that the Elite League doesn't have enough British players and I want to do more to develop British talent. Similarly, I want to grow and develop our coaching staff and create a better pathway and structure from bottom to top and Martin will be a great addition to our coaching team."
