(Bradford, ON, May 31, 2016)

Nicholas Lang has been re-signed for the 2016-2017 regular season by the Bradford Rattlers.

Lang is coming off a 60 point season last year where he finished second in team scoring. Nicholas scored 27 goals and 33 assists in 37 games.

The skilled centreman hails from Brno, Czech Republic.

Nicholas is expected to play a big role down the centre of the ice this season said General Manager Sean Werth: "towards the end of the last season and in playoffs Nicholas was a impact player for us. He is a workhorse that we can rely on to log a ton of minutes for us and put the puck in the net. Nicholas will be getting some pro experience this season which should take his game to another level."

 Along with the contract to the Rattlers, Nicholas will also be playing with St. Clair Shores Fighting Saints FHL expansion team on a call-up basis throughout the season and attending main camp in October.

Nicholas joins a group of 10 returning players from last year's roster. Already announced on contract this off-season includes Khassan Al-Dzhilaui, Bradley Hampton, Matt Barrette and Adam Briski.
