The Waldeck Peterborough Phantoms are delighted to announce the signing of 6ft7 forward Ivan Björkly Nordström for the remainder of the 23/24 season!
The 21-year-old forward will be joining the Phantoms from Sölvesborgs IK where he put up 30 points in 26 games. Ivan has played in the Swedish Division 2 and also the HockeyEttan league where he played 17 games scoring 5 goals and 3 assists.
Head Coach Slava Koulikov commented : “We are all really happy for Ivan to join our club! In Ivan we are getting a smart hockey player who can play in all forward positions and understands the importance of the two-way modern game.”
“Ivan is 6”7 but skates like he’s 5”8 and is really good around the net. He will need time to settle and adjust to this league but from watching videos, I believe Ivan will become one of the fan favourites and an important player for us this season!”
Ivan Björkly Nordström said: “I’m really looking forward to move to England and play a new style of Ice Hockey. Really looking forward to putting on the Peterborough jersey!”
Ivan will wear the #5 jersey for the 23/24 season! Both Ivan's light and dark own & loan are available for the season so please email email@example.com to reserve yours, this will be on a first come first served basis!
Ivan’s player sponsorship is available also, so if you would like this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
