Not had a bad year really has he? It’s difficult not to love Evan Mosey (well that’s Tina’s excuse anyway). He gives you everything he’s got every night and that kind of attitude has always gone down well in Nottingham. So we all love Evan, and that’s before we talk about his blistering pace and the places it gets him into. That penalty shot in the Belfast play-off away leg only happened because he had the speed to get there in the first place. So he gives everything and he’s quick, is that it? Well, it is if you ignore the way he pops up with the important goals or the 12 game point scoring run or even the fact that he’s back next year. Not bad for the Spinarama Kid eh?

It’s rare that an import comes to the EIHL and improves but that is what has happened with Evan Mosey. He was good last season but this campaign he’s been nothing short of exceptional and has made himself a genuine first line forward.
Easily our player of the season, his ability to score important goals or turn on the speed to create offensive play is nothing short of excellent. When you factor in that he gives 100% every single shift you know you have a special player, and I’m delighted we’ll be seeing him in Nottingham for the next two seasons.

Andy Haywood
Player of the season for me. When he was signed last season pretty much everyone to a man questioned his ability having come from one professional season in the Dutch league. What we received last year was brilliant, a speedy defenceman who was moved to forward where his speed was a key feature. What we got this season was even better. Seemed faster, was the fastest player in the league without a doubt, and was more clinical with his chances. His Challenge Cup winning goal in overtime was the sort of heroics we have come to love from him, and with 2 years to go, I can’t wait for the next instalment.

Amazing, unreal, stunning. Those are just some of the words you could use to describe Evan Moseys season. To end the season on a 12-point streak is something Mosey should be immensely proud of. We all knew he had rockets as skates but what we didn’t know was could he finish off the chances those rockets gave him and what we saw, especially in the latter part of the season was that he could. The plan is for players to develop season on season but I’m not sure anyone expected Mosey to develop just that much. Extremely happy and I think its fully justified he got offered a 2 year deal.

Tina Taylor
He’s coming back so my opinion on whether or not he should is perhaps moot, but if there’s anyone in the Panthers fanbase who thinks this isn’t a good signing, you need to have a long, hard look at yourself!
Where to start. Evan Mosey has been a standout player since arriving in Nottingham, we’ve talked about him at length on the Cat’s Whiskers Podcast this season and actually, I can’t remember the last podcast we didn’t at least mention his name.
His versatility saw him doing a stellar job covering on defence for Waugh during his time out injured at the beginning of the season, but as we all know it’s his speed that really sets him apart from everyone else and scares the life out of opposition defenders.
I haven’t got anything bad to say. No really, I haven’t!
