Panthers' favourite Bruce Richardson is new Clan boss
NOTTINGHAM Panthers' favourite Bruce Richardson is the player-coach of new Elite League team Braehead Clan, based in Glasgow.
The vacancy arose when ex-Coventry star Adam Calder apparently walked out on the Clan – which is fronted by Panthers owner Neil Black – and had his contract cancelled.
Panthers coach Corey Neilson paid tribute to Richardson, who has been his assistant in Nottingham for the last two seasons.
"I wish Bruce well. He will prove to be a tremendous adversary," said Neilson.

"He has great energy both on and off the ice and will bring a unique brand of hockey to Scotland – not the style we play, more like 'Bruce hockey'.
"Bruce was ready for this opportunity. For the past two years we have learned a lot from each other, as well as a friendship and a bond.
"He wanted to be in charge of his own team but I don't think he anticipated this.
"He will be good for the league and it is a great situation for him being able to sign 12 imports."
