On the “Super Sunday” of the Glasgow clan, the team has added five more players to its line-up for 2021/22 as the new head coach Malcolm Cameron prepares his squad for the new season.
Fan favorite Mathieu Roy (pictured) is returning for his second season with the clan, this time taking on the additional duties of assistant coach for Cameron. Roy has scored 125 goals in 238 regular season Elite League games.
“I talk to Malcolm a lot too, and we have a good relationship,” said Roy. “He trained me in Florida and knows what I can bring to a team.
“I appreciated his reputation for asking me to become his assistant and I am delighted to take on this role, especially as he tried to recruit me in this position in Wichita a few years ago.
“I want to play my game and find ways we can win and do new things on the team, but Malcolm wants me to get involved with what I enjoy and enjoy.”
Clan also re-signed Matt Haywood, who enjoyed his testimonial season last time around. The 30-year-old has played over 600 games in all Elite League competitions, all but four for the clan. with whom he has been together since 2010.
The Purple Army will again be able to use Jordan McLaughlin’s services online. The young Scot was called up to nine games last time and is becoming increasingly popular with the club’s fan base.
Defenseman Nolan LaPorte will also return for his second season with the clan. The 29-year-old scored 16 goals in 47 regular season games and prepared 23 more.
Finally, the 24-year-old Medric Mercier gets the chance to make his professional debut in the clan one year after joining the team. The Canadian’s move to professional hockey was put on hold with the season’s abandonment last year, but the clan has stuck with the defender for the new season.
