Matheson was then closely followed to Sheffield by Swedish forward Jonas Westerling from Sodertalje SK.Having played in the SHL, Westerling will bring a fast paced, full on attack to the Orangemens' roster.

It was then the turn of Fife Flyers defenceman Philippe Paquet to move to France an join Rouen as replacement for Mark Matheson. The Canadian will take a hunger and determination wherever he goes, Rouen will be no different.

Well on their way to completing their roster, Sheffield Steelers then added American forward Tim Wallace to their squad from Alaska Aces.

Along with the resigning of Jordan Buesa, Braehead Clan then snapped up Dundee Stars young Scot Josh Grieveson. Both youngsters look to have all the pieces to make it in the Elite League.

Clan then announced that last year's forward Corey Cowick would be moving to France to join Epinal. The Canadian proved when he was on his game just how valuable he was to the team at Braehead last year, but perhaps the red mist got the better of him on a number of occasions.

Dundee then made moves to strengthen their roster by adding Canadian forward Malcolm Gould from Strasbourg in France.

While ex-Clan coach found his new home at Manchester Storm next year, he managed to snap up Braehead's fans favourite Jay Rosehill. The ex-NHL star is a quality signing for Manchester, there's no doubt about it. New Clan coach John Tripp is going to find it difficult to replace a man with the presence of Rosehill.

A couple of further inner league transactions took place after that. Taylor Dickin moved from Manchester to Dundee and Matt Marquardt joined Sheffield from Coventry.

Nottingham then added to their goaltending roster by adding former KHL all-star Michael Garnett. The Canadian will no doubt be the number one, but will face stiff competition for the starting job.

James Desmaris then announced that he would be leaving Belfast Giants, with his future uncertain, there will be no doubt that the Giants have a big void to fill in the roster.
