Nottingham Lions are delighted to announce the re-signing of defenseman Jonathan Bell.
Many Lions fans and players will remember Jonny well, being a former junior with the club and also as part of the 2008/2009 national title winning squad. He has now signed on the dotted line for what will be his third spell with his hometown team.
GM Danny Harrison seemed thrilled with the signing saying “It’s strength in numbers – we’re starting to hit a few injuries now and Jonny will be a good asset to the team”.
He went on to add “He’s an experienced guy – the younger guys will be able to look at him and see what positional play he’s playing and are going to be able to learn from him and not just by the play but in the changing room as well – he’s a bit of a character!”
Jonny will play in his old #5 jersey as Elliot Perrin is now side-lined for the rest of the season with a broken arm.
Lions TV caught up with Jonny prior to training this evening and you can see his interview by heading to the Lions TV Channel.
