The DALROD Sponsored Peterborough Phantoms are pleased to announce the return of defenseman Tom Norton, for the 2015/16 season for the second year of his two year deal.

The Phantoms’ 2014/15 Defence man of the Year, Norton scored 5 goals and 26 points in the regular season, with a further goal and assist on the way to the 2015 playoff title. With this, it is fantastic to announce that we have secured him for an extra year on his contract.

Speaking about his return, Tom said: “I’m really excited to be back in Peterborough for another year; Slava is building something special here and I want to be a part of it.

“Last year was a great season for the club finishing in 4th and not only making the playoffs, but also the finals weekend and then winning it was an unreal experience and I can honestly say it will be one of my best hockey memories, because of how we did it and how close we were as a team.

It’s now time to look forward now, to build on our success from last season and give the fans more to cheer about. Have a great summer and see you in August.”

DALROD Phantoms head coach Slava Koulikov said: “Nortz is proved to be one of the best Defence men in the league last year, and I am happy to have him signed a year extension (to his contract), and see him with us for next two seasons.

Tom Norton’s Own & Loan shirts, (Home & Away), are available at £200 each.

Further signings are due to be announced soon and can be found on www.gophantoms.com, the official Peterborough Phantoms Facebook page, on Twitter – @GoPhantoms or our dedicated YouTube channel OfficialPhanTV.
