The Bradford Rattlers have made two huge additions to the 2016-17 lineup. Veteran Rattlers Marcus Hedberg and Rasmus Brunnberg have returned to the club expected to play big roles on this year's team.

Star forward #91 Rasmus Brunnberg has re-signed for his third season as a Rattler. Rasmus posted 41 points in 29 games last injury riddled season. Brunnberg had several college offers after last season but has chose to return to Rattlers for a shot at the Russell Cup. Brunnberg is known as a clutch player who steps up in big games.

All-Star  Defenceman #24 Marcus Hedberg has returned to RattNation for a second season. Hedberg, 21, is a smooth skating, smart defenceman who was an Assistant Captain & named to the 2016 GMHL All-Star Game. Hedberg turned down a US College offer to return to the Rattlers and pursue a better deal.

The Rattlers will be welcoming one new-comer Swede, who's signing announcement will be released shortly.

Welcome back boys!
