His long-awaited return comes after months of recovery, following an injury he sustained only two weeks into the 2018/19 season – while Covid affecting the season after that.

The 40-year-old will now return for his 15th season on the ice for Telford, after first signing in 2005, and will join up with the second team.

Telford Tigers 2 coach Scott McKenzie said: “We’re very happy that Karol has agreed to sign for another season.

“He brings lots of experience and skill and can read the game very well. We’re looking for Karol to bring his creativity and vision of play to the team this year and he will most certainly compliment his team-mates creating openings and lots of goals.”

Jets added: “I am really happy to be re-signing for Telford Tigers for another season. I am sure we will have a competitive team. I am excited to get back on the ice with the team, after difficult last 18 months.”

Meanwhile, Danny Rose has also signed for another year and will join the first team – returning for his ninth year with the Tigers.

Rose said: “I’m really excited to be back in Telford next year. After speaking with Tom and having had the kind of season we had previously, it made my decision extremely easy to come back and sign for Telford again. Obviously winning the double was incredible and it was just a shame the way it ended and that we didn’t get to try for the treble, but this is a new season and I’m looking forward to getting it started and pulling on a Tigers jersey again.”
