Sean Beattie Signing Announcement

Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes-Benz, are delighted to confirm Kirkcaldy born left winger Sean Beattie has boosted the British contingent for their 2017/18 roster by agreeing to sign on for the new season.

At 22 years of age the 6ft 2” player will enter his 6th season in the Elite League having spent the previous 5 seasons with Edinburgh Capitals.

Having come through the junior ranks at Murrayfield Ice Rink, Beattie's performances with Edinburgh's SNL side caught the eye of then player-coach Richard Hartmann.

Despite only being 22, Beattie has iced in 197 EIHL games, scoring 5 goals and 7 assists. As well as representing Edinburgh in the Elite League for the previous 5 season, Beattie has also iced with the Capitals' SNL side, playing in 46 games and scoring 31 goals and 27 assists.

Speaking about joining Fife, Sean said the following "I'm looking forward to pulling on a Fife jersey for the up and coming season.

"I watched Fife play as a kid and to play for the team will be a great experience in my hockey career. I am really happy to be a part of the Fife franchise.

"I'm looking to get some trophies under the belt and to improve my game every week under new coach's and new players."

Assistant Coach Jeff Hutchins added "Sean is a big body that skates well.  We will be looking to refine his game this season.  He will need to play in straight lines and work on becoming a good pro on and off the ice. He has the ability to become a reliable Brit in the Elite League. 

"Sean is still young and we are happy that he chosen to come back to Fife and play. We are looking forward to working with him over the course of the season."

Sean will wear the number 18 jersey this season.
