The club won the BCHL title in the 2015/16 season.

Fife Flyers head coach Todd Dutiaume said: “We are delighted to welcome Kristian to the Flyers.

"He is a slippery defenceman who moves the puck very well and is a slick skater.

“During the off-season he was icing with a DL2 side [Germany] and he will be an excellent signing for us at the backend.”
