DUNDEE TIGERS have announced the re-signing of defenceman Alex Purves to the 2015/16 lineup.

Fifer Purves, known as ‘Eck’ adds a calm, collected presence to the Tigers defensive core and will play a key role in the campaign ahead.

A Tigers spokesperson said: “Eck missed a few games last year due to work commitments and injury but he’s back for another year and ready to play.

“He’s got fantastic composure on the puck and is a guy you can count on in all defensive situations so we’re glad he’s back on the blueline for us.”


Purves will make his return to the squad this Sunday, 13th September (f/o 6:30pm) when the Tigers host the Aberdeen Lynx in the 2nd leg of the Autumn Cup quarter-final.
