JAY ROSEHILL admits he is ‘all ears’ for talks to extend his Braehead Clan stay.

The former NHL enforcer has become a big fan favourite since arriving in Glasgow during the summer in what has been an up-and-down campaign for Ryan Finnerty’s side.

Given more licence to play hockey than what the ex-Philadelphia Flyer has been used to during his time in North America, Rosehill has flourished on Clyde side on what has been his first stint in the UK.

With his deal up in the summer and the season finale little over a month away, time is getting closer to consider his options once the Elite League campaign has come to an end.

And, speaking exclusively to SportTimes, the 31-year-old told how he would be keen to remain a Clansman for another term.

“Yeah, you bet,” said Rosehill.

“We are just trying to focus on this year and win that other trophy.

“When that time comes to talk I’ll be all ears.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time in Scotland, very much so.

“We didn’t know what to expect coming over having never been over here before. But I’ve been very happy.

“I’ve been treated very well, the people is good, the land is awesome and we’ve got to see a lot of things I’d not have been able to otherwise.

“I’m happy and my family are happy so I couldn’t have asked for more. It’s a great spot to be in.”

The imposing Canadian racked up over 100 games in the NHL while also dipping into the AHL.

Taking a step away from the top level of hockey on the other side of the pond, Rosehill committed to the unknown at Braehead in the pursuit of silverware to add to his CV.

That leap of faith was rewarded on Saturday night as Clan clinched the Gardiner Conference in front of a bumper home crowd against the Dundee Stars, but Rosehill is not ready to stop there.

With the Elite League title out of reach, the former Toronto Maple Leafs left wing has targeted making it all the way to the end of season play-offs – Clan are seeded for the quarter-finals – and clinching the championship.

“We’ve got one trophy now and it feels good,” he said.

“Now our sights are to get as high in the standings as we can then go after the play-off championship as well.

“If we can get two out of three then I don’t think that is anything to sneeze at.

“There is more work to be done but on Saturday we made sure we enjoyed our moment.

“It means a lot. It was one of our goals and do it with this many games left and the start we had shows the kind of hockey we’ve been playing lately.

“We wanted to do it on Saturday, especially with the way it was set up against Dundee in front of our own fans. That was important to us too.

“I was very glad to be back from injury, it would have been tough to watch from the sidelines. I came back just in time, I got my wind back and that was good, for sure.”

Meanwhile, club captain Matt Keith hailed his team-mates for clinching the conference title for the third season on the spin, and said: “This has come at the right time for us and we and the fans should be proud that we’ve won it. But winning the Conference doesn’t mean the rest of the season is pointless.

“We want to win and win in the right way as we head into March and the tough games ahead and as long as I’ve been here, it’s important to do things the right way.

“It’s good to pick up that trophy and throughout the season, goals can maybe change as the weeks go on, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the winning of this Conference.

“It helps in the seeding when it comes to the play-offs certainly, but we have to take overall pride in winning it for a third time in a row.”
