Fife Flyers’ forward Kyle Osterberg will honour the memory of his friend and former team-mate, Adam Johnson, by wearing his name and jersey number on his warm-up top.

They were both part of the University of Minnesota-Duluth team across two seasons from 2015-17. Osterberg’s tribute, which will see him warm up with ‘Johnson 47’ on his shirt for the remainder of the season, has the blessing of Adam’s family.

The Nottingham Panthers player died after a freak -on ice accident in the game against Sheffield Steelers last weekend.
