Peterborough Phantoms have snapped up teenage forward prospect Connor Glossop.

The Great Britain Under 20 international arrives from Nottingham Lions, who play two levels below Phantoms.

Glossop hit 19 goals and 20 assists for Lions for a 39-point total in National Ice Hockey League Division Two last season.

The Phantoms roster looks set for a big summer overhaul with a host of players having departed.

Glossop (18) is the second new forward to be drafted in by coach Slava Koulikov this summer after James Archer, who joins from English Premier League rivals Manchester Phoenix.

Phantoms are also understood to have captured Czech giant Petr Stepanek although club officials refuse to confirm or deny that deal.
