2021-22 Signing Alert – Scott Cooper

This evening, the Solent Devils are delighted to announce the re-signing English forward, Scott Cooper.

Since joining the Solent Devils Cooper has contributed 3 goals and 4 assists in his 24 games, speaking about his return Cooper said

“I’ll be looking to bring an energy and maturity to our line each night and to continue developing and playing the Solent way”

Solent Head Coach, Alex Murray spoke of the bond Cooper has made with the team since joining

“We have a close group of guys on our team, and it feels like Scotty has been a part of it from day one! He is a great team guy, influential in the locker room and an asset on the ice across all lines and special teams. Now Scotty is settled down South I am expecting a big season from him, I know he has been working hard throughout the pandemic to remain healthy and ready for when we return!”

When asked about what the Spring Cup Series meant to him, Cooper continued

“Very valuable both mentally and physically it was a real relief to be able to play the sport we all love during such a testing time for everyone. The boys and I were very privileged and none of us took it for granted. I believe that showed in the performances we put in each game throughout the series.”

The pandemic has taken it’s toll on life and the things we take for granted, Cooper reflected

”I think it gave me a real perspective for what’s important and to make the most of each opportunity that comes my way as things can be taken away just as quick as they appear.”

Looking forward to the season ahead Cooper concluded

“We have a very solid core group of players that show up every night but we just need to make sure we make each other accountable and show that group mentality that got us through a lot of tough games last year.”

Cooper will return to the Devils in shirt #24.  If you would like to sponsor a Devil or become a team sponsor, contact devilssupporters@outlook.com
