FORMER Braehead Clan forward Stefan Meyer says it was an honour to be inducted onto the club’s Wall of Fame.

The Canadian spent two years under the Clan in their former guise between 2014 and 2016 and was welcomed back as his banner was displayed for the first time.

And Meyer was blown away as he returned to Glasgow for the first time, receiving a massive ovation from the Purple Army before Friday’s game with Dundee Stars.

“Being back is surreal. It’s almost unrealistic because you’re where you are with home and work then you come back to a place you lived and breathed for 20 years of your life,” he said.

“It’s something you won’t forget and you get one last hurrah. I guess this was it for me and for the organisation to do this for me and the fans who want to stop and talk to you about things you did or an impact I made on them, you can’t beat it.

“To have my wife out there with me tonight, then pictures and video, then getting my kids involved, I’m very grateful for the whole experience.

“Hearing the fans sing my song again made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. You sacrifice so much as a player and when you move here, it’s an appreciation as a player and as a person you can’t explain. It stays with you for sure.”

The 33-year-old Canadian made 108 appearances for the Clan in his two seasons at Braehead, notching 56 goals and 70 assists in that time as well as helping the side to two successive Gardiner Conference titles.
