Scott Robson has become the latest player to commit his future to Peterborough Phantoms.

The defenceman will be returning for the 2015/2016 season as part of a new two-year deal that will see the Hull-based player with the club until the end of the 2016/17 season.

Nineteen year-old Scott has played 50 games in all competitions for the Phantoms scoring four goals and seven assists, including a goal in the Play-Off Final win against the Manchester Phoenix.

Phantoms head coach, Slava Koulikov said: “Scott has done a great job in his first year in the EPL and I am very pleased to have him with us for the next two years.

“He reads the game well for his age, he makes good first passes, and he can skate with the puck if needed and be an offensive threat. As well as that, he is solid in the defensive zone and good on the PK.

“He is young, hungry and with the work he is putting in this summer, he can establish himself as one of the best British D-men in the league next season.”

Robson said: “I’m over the moon to be back for the next two years in Peterborough under Slava. I am sure with a lot of hard work, we can build on the success of last year and earn more silverware this upcoming year.

“The league is shaping up to be the toughest yet. Every game will be a battle.

“I’m looking forward to getting started again in September and seeing all the players, staff and our fans. We have a great group this year. I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead and to develop further in my game and achieve my personal goals.”
