With two and a half seasons under his belt in Kent before now, utility man Adam McNicoll is already a familiar face at the SilverBlades and accustomed to the NIHL South’s top tier. The Dundee man first arrived in Gillingham in the summer of 2013 but, despite a string of promising appearances, the young forward then returned north of the border and finished the campaign back in his home town. His absence was far from permanent however and McNicoll was with the Mos again for 2014/15 and 2015/16. His two stints meant that, before a summer switch back to Scotland following the end of last season, the skater parted ways with the Dynamos having made 102 appearances, notched 21 goals and tallied 26 assists for a total of 47 points.
Since leaving the Mos Adam McNicoll signed briefly for the Solway Sharks before later switching to the Aberdeen Lynx. It is Kent that has become his home from home though and the utility man, who has represented the Dynamos both as a forward and in defence, expressed an interest in a return to the club following a change of circumstances allowing him to return south.
“Adam is an established player at this level, he can do a job for us at both ends of the ice and he already knows the club inside and out. I know he has previously enjoyed his hockey here and he was very keen to return when it became possible so I’m sure the supporters will be delighted to have him back in the line-up. Adam is still only 22, has plenty more to offer out on the ice and I’ve no doubt we’ll see the best of him in 2016/17”.
