The DALROD Sponsored Peterborough Phantoms are pleased to announce that Anglo-Canadian forward Craig Scott will be joining the Phantoms for the 2015-16 season.

After beginning his training with the Milton Keynes Jr Kings, Craig has spent his junior career playing in Canada.

He enjoyed a strong Junior AAA career with the Selkirk Steelers in the MJHL before returning to coach after playing for the University of Manitoba, (CIS).

David Obirek, General Manager of the Selkirk Steelers, (MJHL), praised Craig: “We are very proud of Craig and know he will do well with this new and exciting chapter in his life. He will certainly be missed by the entire organization and we thank him for the tremendous job that he did this past season under the guidance of Head Coach Wayne Bartley”

Speaking about the signing DALROD Phantoms Head Coach Slava Koulikov said: “It is great to welcome Craig to the team. Last summer we started the process of trying to sign Craig, but this wasn’t to be for the 2014/15 season. So it is great to finally announce he will be joining us. We look forward to welcoming and settling him into the team and starting his journey, creating personal goals and achievements”.

He added: “I played with Craig’s Dad, Paddy Scott, at the MK Kings. He was a brilliant player and I am looking forward to now working with his son.”

Speaking about coming to the Phantoms, Craig said: “I am excited to be coming to Peterborough. I can’t wait to meet the guys, the fans, and the rest of the Phantoms organization. I am thrilled to be joining the reigning playoff champs and working under the reigning (IHJUK) coach of the year”.

He continued: “Slava seems to be an excellent coach and is passionate about the game and I will learn a lot from him this coming season. I will bring a lot to the Phantoms; speed, a strong two-way game, playmaking abilities, dynamic shot, and an excellent work ethic. Here is to having a very successful season and bringing some more silverware to Peterborough!”

Craig’s Own & Loan shirts are available at £200 for the home shirt, and £200 for the away shirt.
