BRAEHEAD CLAN have announced that the Cardiff Devils will join the Nottingham Panthers in competing with the Scottish side for this summer's Aladdin Cup.

The three Elite League sides will face off in the tournament this August ahead of the new domestic season. 

Clan's campaign ended disappointingly earlier this month with a Play-off quarter-final exit to Dundee Stars that led to the departure of head coach Ryan Finnerty. 

Braehead won the Aladdin Cup last year thanks to a 5-2 win over the Panthers, but the competition has been changed to a round robin format for the 2017/18 campaign. 

The Glasgow side will be bidding for their fifth consecutive triumph in the cup this summer over the weekend of 19/20 August.
