The Waldeck Peterborough Phantoms are thrilled to announce the re-signing of Czech forward, #93 Ales Padelek.

Returning for his 8th consecutive season with the Phantoms, #93 Ales Padelek will form the second part of the Czech Duo, alongside #91 Lukas Sladkovsky for the 23/24 season. Leading the Phantoms all-time goals with 231 from 352 games, Padi brings a wealth of experience and goal scoring capabilities.

Last season saw Padi score an impressive 36 goals and 30 assists from 54 games, which took his all-time points to 467 from just 352 games. Since joining the Phantoms in the 15/16 season, Padi hs become one of the most successful players to wear a Phantoms jersey.

Head Coach Slava Koulikov commented: "Back on the ice with the fire of experience, our veteran forward, Padi, returns for his triumphant 8th season with the Phantoms. Padi played a big part in our success over the last seven years and also passed on a lot of experience to young British players throughout our Juniors, Phantoms 2, and the first team. Last season, Padi was our joint top goal scorer with 35 goals, and he prepared our power play to perfection in the Cup Final, showcasing how important he is to us on the ice. A great player, a great leader, and an even better person, inspiring all our players to skate towards greatness and achieve new heights in the game we love”

Ales Padelek commented: “I am really happy to still be a Phantom and playing in our home rink where we have the most amazing fans, friends and families. With Luke #19 on our team, I am really looking forward to the season as it was unforgettable to play alongside his brothers Jimmy and Robbie. Not long now. See you all soon.”
