“He has clearly developed his own strength and conditioning over the last year as his position as a personal trainer has helped him focus on developing this area.”

Meanwhile, Capitals have signed Philip Macquire as the strength and conditioning coach.

Macquire is undertaking a Masters programme at Edinburgh University and Neil admitted: “It is an area that has often been neglected in the past and off-ice training has often been left to the individual players during the season.

“We will be working with Phil to provide a co-ordinated training approach to injury prevention and performance enhancement.”
