The Jets have announced their recently appointed club captain Dan Scott is leaving to join another EPIHL team.

Director of operations Steve English said the club was saddened by Scott’s departure, particularly with it coming weeks after he was handed the club captain role by head coach Slava Koulikov.

He said: “We, as a club, are saddened firstly that Dan has been approached and made an offer that he could not refuse while under contract in a disrespectful manner and obviously secondly that he has taken up that offer.

“Slava and the management put great faith in Dan in appointing him club captain following the departure of Michael Wales and we are all left saddened at his decision to leave us within weeks of his promotion.”

He added: “Our Coaching staff have made mid season signings in previous seasons but we have only conducted negotiations with players that have approached us.

“The respectful time for approaching players is in the closed season when players are not under contract. It is for this reason that we have had such difficulty in searching for both forward and defensive replacements for the team.”
