Fife Flyers assistant coach Jeff Hutchins says they want newly-signed defenceman Rick Pinkston to bring a winning mentality to the club.

The 27-year-old is the latest player to be unveiled by the Kirkcaldy side as their preparations continue for the new campaign.

And Hutchins outlined the attributes that made him and Flyers coach Todd Dutiaume move to bring him to Scotland.

“Rick is a solid all-round defenceman who is responsible in the D-zone and has the ability to jump up in the rush when required,” Hutchins said.

“All the references that have come back have been positive and we feel that we’ve brought in a good character guy in the room.

“He comes to us as someone who has won championships and we will be looking for him to bring that winning mentality and experience to Fife.”

Pinkston is an ECHL Kelly Cup champion, having won it with Allen Americans in 2016 and is a former team-mate of Charlie Mosey, who played with the Gardiner Conference champions last year.
