The Devils are pleased to confirm that Charles Linglet will be back in Cardiff for the 2019-20 season.
The 36-year-old forward spent the majority of 8 seasons in the KHL prior to joining the Devils last summer, most of those with Minsk after starting his KHL career with Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod back in 2010/11.
Before moving to the KHL, the Montreal native spent 6 seasons in the American Hockey League (AHL), playing over 300 AHL games before eventually getting called up for 5 games with the Edmonton Oilers during the 2009/10 season.
Linglet holds a Belarusian passport and was called up for 3 World Championships with team Belarus, playing 71 games and recording 45 points for Belarus.
He played 76 games for the Devils across all competitions last year, recording an impressive 96 points (28+68). In 59 league games he scored 21 goals and added 54 assists for 75 points to lead the Devils in scoring and finish third overall in the league scoring charts.
Charles scored 4 goals and had 4 assists in the 9-4 Playoffs semi-final win over the Nottingham Panthers. The Playoff trophy was the first major championship win for Linglet and getting that taste of silverware has only made him hungrier for more:
“The whole experience of winning that trophy was just incredible and it’s something I’d really like to repeat again.”
“The fans here have embraced me and my family like I’ve never experienced before, we feel like we are part of the community now. Cardiff is a great place but also a really special place to play.”
