After a 3-2 overtime win at the weekend against biggest rivals Sheffield Steelers in the Challenge Cup, Nottingham Panthers have more good news for their fans having signed Tel Aviv born forward David Levin who’s added to the clubs roster with immediate effect.
The 23-year-old left winger has dual Canadian/Israeli citizenship having played through the Junior ranks in Canada and in the OHL with Sudbury Wolves.
Having played in the KHL in Latvia with Dinamo Riga, Levin has more recently played in Sweden and Slovakia before a spell at HT Netanya in his home country Israel last season, he joins the Panthers off the back of 17 goals and 21 assists in just ten games played in the IEHL.
Levin stating “I have heard some great things about the city. I’m looking forward to playing in this arena in-front of what I’ve heard are amazing supporters.
“Overall, I like to play hard. I’ve come here to win.”
The signing of Levin will boost the bad news of defenceman Mike Caruso being injured for the next 3-4 weeks. Carusso has been put on Injured Reserve but will be eligible to return on the 22nd October when the Panthers again face Sheffield in the Challenge Cup.
Nottingham are next in action against Dundee Stars on Friday night in the Elite League at the Motorpoint Arena.
