SIGNING: Former Devil Ully set for Glasgow switch

July 1, 2024

The Glasgow Clan are delighted to announce the signing of forward Cole Ully, who will join the club for the 2024/25 campaign.

The 29-year-old forward, who plays on the left wing, will extend his career in the UK after signing from Elite League rivals the Cardiff Devils.

And the combination of due diligence and a chance to work with head coach Corey Neilson was a winning combination for him.

“I’m delighted to have signed in Glasgow for the new season, and I can’t wait to get going in a few weeks,” he said.

“I know Corey can put together a winning team and a winning culture, and I’m looking forward to being part of that.

“I worked with him a few years ago, and some of the guys who played in Glasgow last year loved it so much, so it was an easy decision for me and my girlfriend.

“I’m looking forward to getting there and I’m hoping we can have great success this year.”

Ully makes the move north after a campaign with the Devils, where he helped them to a second place league finish, and a semi-final berth in the play-offs.

He played 63 times for Pete Russell’s side, including five appearances in the Continental Cup – he scored 20 goals and added 40 assists across all competitions.

Prior to that, he had spells in Sweden with Vasterviks in 2022-23, and in Slovakia the season before that, where he featured for HKM Zvolen and HK Poprad, where he played 52 times, scoring 18 goals and 27 assists.

This added to 217 games and 219 points in the ECHL – icing for the Idaho Steelheads, Utah Grizzlies and South Carolina Stingrays.

His experience also extended into the AHL where he played over 100 times, primarily with Texas Stars over a three-year period between 2014 and 2017.

Clan head coach Corey Neilson spoke of what Ully will bring to the team, touching on their previous working relationship.

“Cole played for me in Slovakia a few years ago and I found him to be an extremely high IQ offensive player who compliments his linemates very well,” he said.

“He was also very well-liked by his teammates and one of our great dressing room guys.

“Cole is very diligent defensively, knowing and having played my system before, and he is familiar with the league which is really important. Plus he will be relied upon heavily to produce points and wins for us.”

Ully will wear the #91 jersey in the new season.
