Swindon Wildcats are delighted to confirm the first new face to the 20-21 NIHL Roster.

Balint Pakozdi joins from the New Hampshire Jr Monarchs in the USPHL Premier league in North America.

Balint, a graduate from Okanagan Hockey Academy in 2017, spent two season in North America where he posted 136 points (38 goals and 98 assists) in 98 games. Prior to his two-year stint in the USA, Balint spent a year in Sweden where he iced for the Visby/Roma J20 side.

Balint, who despite being Hungarian will qualify as a British trained player, first arrived at OHA in 2013. He iced for both the U16 and U18 OHA team and is no stranger to Swindon after spending 5 years with the Academy, working with both Ryan Aldridge and Pete Russell.

Internationally he has also had success competing for Hungary at U18 and U19 level.

We hope all Wildcats fans will welcome Balint to the team, and you’ll be able to hear from Head Coach Aaron Nell later today about what he feels our new number 3 will bring to the team.

Welcome back to Swindon Balint!
