Tyler Plews has signed with The Bespoke Guardians Swindon Wildcats for the fourth consecutive season.
Kirkcaldy-born Tyler joined fellow Scot Renny Marr in Swindon, having [previously played for the Edinburgh Capitals in the EHL.
Since the move, Tyler has become one of the most popular players in Swindon and a true favourite with the Wildcats fanbase.
In his debut season for the Wildcats the 23-year-old played a crucial part in the NIHLS1 League Title and, according to the team, has grown into his roles in the years since.
During the last NIHL National Season he increased his goal tally from 2 to 6 and his points tally from 11 to 17.
Head Coach Aaron Nell said: “Tyler has come into the club and taken the Wildcats truly to his heart.
"He’s such a popular part of our locker-room and someone with an infectious personality. The fans really love him in Swindon and every year he’s improved on the ice.
"Whilst his on-ice work is impressive, he’s also bought into other areas of the organisation, working alongside our Community & Academy programmes, regularly attending school visits and Learn To Play sessions.
"His game has really matured and he’s become a top four defenceman for us in the last couple of years. He’s increased the amount of ice time he gets and is someone I can trust in the big moments of the game. He’s still got room to improve and has plenty of years ahead of him.
"I can’t wait to get back to work with Tyler and I know how popular this signing will be with our fans.”
