Manchester Phoenix have announced the signature of Swedish forward Marcus Kristoffersson for the season.

The 31-year-old had spells in Sweden, Finland and the AHL in America before opting for a spell in the UK.

"He's big, he's powerful, he gets goals, he hits, he checks, he does everything. He will track back and help his team when he's on the ice."
