On signing Nekrosevicius said

I’ve returned for another year because Solent is a brilliant team with a lot of talent and I would very much like to continue to contribute to the clubs success.

Head Coach Murray comments

I’m looking forward to welcoming back Kris for next season following a breakout year last time out!

Having arrived in the south coast after the start of the season, it quickly became apparent that Kris had all the attributes to develop into a top defencemen in the next 2-4 years! With the opportunities available at Solent, Kris will be able to get good minutes under his belt and step into a more responsible role as the season continues. His size and strength really benefits us on our small pad.

Nekrosevicius continues

Last season was difficult as it was my first season playing senior hockey. I earned some experience and I hope to gain more in the upcoming season.

When asked what he gets out of Ice Hockey, Nekrosevicius said

The sport helps to keep me active, meet new people and friends as well as travel around the country.

Nekrosevicius concludes

Next season I look forward to being a part of the team and playing more hockey.

Nekrosevicius will return to the Devils in shirt #2. If you would like to sponsor a Devil or become a team sponsor, contact devilssupporters@outlook.com
