Forward Jake Elmer is Dundee Stars' final signing of the 2023/24 off-season.

The team confirmed the 24-year-old Canadian on Sunday evening, and he heads to Scotland after putting up 15 points in 26 regular season games for Nitra in the Slovak top flight last season.

Prior to heading to Europe, Elmer played 127 ECHL games where he scored 32 goals and totalled 37 assists. He also iced in 17 AGL fixtures for the return of five points. 

"I am very delighted to have Jake joining us because he brings a lot of offensive capabilities to the table and he is going to help our powerplay quite a bit," began head Coach Marc LeFebvre. "He also has some experience in the American league, the coast and he played in Europe last season, so we are excited to have him."

Elmer had originally signed with Danish outfit, Odense Bulldogs for this coming season but would become available again in recent weeks, allowing LeFebvre to bring him to Dundee.

LeFebvre added: "Jake became available in the last week and his representatives reached out to us, as they knew we were looking for a final forward and things came together pretty quickly, and we are delighted to have him.

"It is never easy but we stuck to the blueprint of what we wanted. We wanted strong veteran goaltending and we got that, we wanted a big defensive-core and we got that, and we wanted depth upfront with offensive capabilities and some physicality throughout the line-up. Everything got marked off that we wanted and I am looking forward to getting these guys on the ice."
