Right winger Michael Ireland is back with the Edinburgh Capitals SNL side this season but is on a 2 way contract so if the opportunity arises will step up to the Capitals EIHL roster this season. Last year he dressed in 6 games for the EIHL team and he will have gained valuable experience that he will look to take into this coming campaign.
The 19 year old grew up through the Murrayfield Junior system before icing in the SNL last term. He has also represented Scotland at Under 18 & 20 level.
Martin Cingel said of the signing “Michael is a hard working forward with a great attitude. He had experience with the Elite League squad last season which will have benefited him greatly in terms of development. He has a chance to play SNL this season but also look to impress Elite League coach Michal Dobron. He’ll be a real asset for the club as a whole and is a great character in the dressing room. At the moment I am glad to have him a part of the SNL team, we will see what the season brings for Michael.”
