The Devils are pleased to announce the return of Sean Bentivoglio for the upcoming 2017/18 season.
Last season was the 31 year old’s first year in Cardiff after joining the Devils from Italian side Asiago where he spent the previous 5 seasons. In 63 games with the Devils, Bentivoglio scored 20 goals and added 39 assists for 59 points.
Of his 20 goals, 4 were on the powerplay and 5 were game winners. He had 11 multi-point games, none more memorable than the 3 point night (1 goal, 2 assists) he had in Sheffield on March 18th in the league clinching victory over the Steelers. He also had 2 assists in the Challenge Cup final and a hat-trick in the conference clinching victory over the Belfast Giants in late March.
Andrew Lord spoke about the signing of Bentivoglio:
“Last season, Benti formed a superb partnership with linemate Joey Martin for the second half of the season and together they were a dominant force.
“He is a dynamic player with great playmaking ability as well as an excellent scoring touch.
“But above all else, he is a great team player with loads of character and he is a proven winner.CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE SEAN BENTIVOGLIO INTERVIEW
