BRITISH Elite League outfit Coventry Blaze have announced resurrection of their two-way deal for Matt Selby with the Swindon Wildcats.

The 21 year old, who played 42 times for Swindon in the Premier League last season, will return to the Link Centre, although Coventry will retain first call on his services.

D-man Selby recently made his 150th appearance for Coventry will continue to train with the Blaze, having made 17 appearances for them so far this season.

Blaze head coach Danny Stewart said, “We believe this will benefit Matt Selby in his development for the future.

"He will continue to train with us every day and be used in games we feel he will get more ice.

"He will still be a member of the Coventry Blaze. What this does is allow him to play more minutes in more situations and reap the benefits of both situations.

"We will have total control of when we need him or when he plays in Swindon which was the only way we would consider this.”

Selby also previously had a spell at Swindon's rivals, Basingstoke Bison, where he won the EPIHL Cup and Playoff Championship in 2014/15 and captained the Great Britain Under 20s team to a gold medal at the World Junior Championships in Estonia.
