MVP and Defenceman of the Year Andrew Hotham is back!!

Last season's Elite League Player of the Year is back with the Devils for another season.

Defenceman Andrew Hotham, who led the league in scoring by a defender for the third straight season, returns to Cardiff for his 4th season. 

In 2016/17, Hotham scored 17 goals and 56 assists for an incredible 73 points in 67 games making him the only defenceman to crack into the top 10 scoring charts.  He actually finished tied for the Devils league top scorer with Joey Martin.

Hotham can do it all and proved it last season.  He scores goals, quarterbacks the powerplay, kills penalties, blocks shots, hits hard and even drops the gloves every so often.  He is the complete package and is a huge signing for the Devils.

Last year was the 3rd season in a row that Hotham was selected as the EIHL's Defenceman of the Year and the first time he won the EIHL's coveted Player of the Year award voted on by the coaches and general managers around the league.

Player/Coach Andrew Lord is pleased to have Hotham back and describes him as a "special talent" in the EIHL. 

"He is one of the most skilled players I have worked with or played with in all my years of pro hockey.

"Hoth brings so much to this team and completes a defensive unit that are all mobile, move the puck well and can jump into the play."
