Kirkcaldy Kestrels and North Ayrshire Wild kick-off the pre-season schedule in Scotland when they meet at Fife Ice Arena on Saturday.
The two sides face each other again at Auchenharvie Leisure Centre the following day.
Wild have confirmed that Ryan Parkin, Marc Fowley and Andy Barr have agreed another year with the club in the run-up to the games.
Dundee Tigers have secured the services of Ross Johnston for the upcoming campaign. The forward spent the last eight seasons with Dundee Comets.
The Tigers have also added Ross Bree, Stuart Sinclair and Ben Johnson to their squad ahead of Sunday’s pre-season fixture at home to Paisley Pirates.
The Pirates have confirmed just five returnees this summer, with Chris Turley, Callum Henderson and Richard Thorp the latest players to agree another year.
Comets’ player/coach John Dolan returns for his fourth season with the club, while Solway Sharks have added Michael Thomson to their roster.
