User Rating:  / 0

Basingstoke Bison logo The Paul Baldwin Agencies Basingstoke Bison are pleased to announce that both Tomas Karpov and Kurt Reynolds will be back next season.

Top British defenceman Kurt Reynolds returns for the second year of his two year contract, while sharp shooter Karpov is back for the second of a three year deal and will once again be studying with one of the Herd’s sponsors, the University of Winchester.

Reynolds, winner of the Basingstoke Gazette Sports Personality of the Year earlier this year, will pull on a Bison jersey for an eighth straight campaign and was also the Herd’s British Player of the Year for last season.

He is as good as any player in the English Premier League on the blue line and always gives 100 per cent every shift.

Czech forward Karpov's last season was interrupted by a broken wrist, but in two years with the club he has proved to a key member of the Herd’s forward line.

He has an excellent work rate and plays with flair as well as not being afraid to mix it up in the corners.

Bison player/coach Doug Sheppard is really pleased to see both players continue their time with the Herd and said: “Kurt is very solid and was a key member of defensive core last season. Tomas has a great work ethic, but was injured last season. I am sure he will bounce back this campaign and I can see him scoring 35 goals.”

Returning defenceman Reynolds said: “I enjoy playing for Basingstoke as it is my home town team and hopefully this year we can get back to winning some silverware.”

Forward Karpov said: “I am looking forward to playing another season with the Bison and I hope I can help the team do well.”

Any Bison fans looking to watch some of the future Herd stars play can see them in action for the Buffalo this weekend, as they play the semi-final of their promotion play-offs.

The first game is in Slough on Saturday face-off 6.45pm and they are then at home at the Basingstoke Arena on Sunday which starts at 6.30pm.
