David Ling has become the second player to be confirmed for Stevie Lee’s testimonial night, with tickets going on sale tomorrow (Tuesday).
The SL45 All-Stars tournament takes place at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Tuesday 30th October (7:30pm).
Ling had two spells with the Panthers, including helping them to the Elite League title, playoff championship and Challenge Cup in 2012-13.
He scored over 100 points in his Nottingham career and in that triple-winning season, he was named as the Elite League’s Player of the Year, Forward of the Year and onto the First All-Star team.
“I am really looking forward to coming back to Nottingham and seeing everyone,” said Ling.
“I have such great memories of the city, the team and the supporters and it will be special to be back.
“When I heard from Stevie about his testimonial there was no doubt in my mind I would be there.
“Stevie is a great player, a brilliant team-mate and a great person. He deserves this testimonial and I am proud to be part of it.”
Lee added: “Linger is one of the most exciting players ever to put on a Panthers shirt.
“He was such a key part of our massive success in 2012-13 and so popular on and off the ice.
“I am so honoured he will be part of the testimonial and it will be great to see him back in Nottingham.”
Ling joins Jordan Fox as the first two players to be confirmed for the game, with more announcements to follow this week.
