The Cardiff Devils are pleased to confirm the signing of former Nottingham Panther Evan Mosey.
The 29-year old Mosey joins the Devils after departing from the Herning Blue Fox in Denmark where he signed in the off-season and played 15 games with this season.
Last year he was with the Nottingham Panthers where he scored 22 goals and 22 assists in 55 games, splitting time between forward and defence. Prior to that, he spent a year in the American Hockey League in Rockford playing for the top farm team of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Mosey first came to the UK for the 2014-15 season when he joined the Panthers for two seasons, winning an Erhardt Conference Title, a Challenge Cup and a Playoff Championship in those 2 years. In fact, Mosey was the player who scored the game winner in the Challenge Cup Final to beat the Devils in 2016.
Devils Head Coach Andrew Lord spoke about the signing of Evan Mosey:
“Mosey is one of the fastest skaters we have seen in this league and he can play forward and defence, which is a huge plus. He has an impressive skillset and will fit in well to the style we play in Cardiff.
“This is a big day for us, yesterday we lost a great player in Ben Blood and today we signed another great player to fill that void.”

Mosey who holds a British passport, broke his leg while preparing to play with Team GB last April and missed the World Championships. He spent the summer recovering and getting back to full fitness, but he is raring to go with the Devils.
The Devils are working on his paperwork and will hopefully have him in the line-up for this weekend’s games, away to Milton Keynes on Saturday and Belfast at home on Sunday. Mosey will wear number 23 for the Devils.
