Goodbye Scottish accent, hello English intonation.
That's the storyline for Steamboat Springs-raised, professional hockey player Ryan Dingle, a goal-scoring forward who recently signed a new contract to play for England's Coventry Blaze.
After helping lead the University of Denver Pioneers to a national championship in 2007, Dingle, 33, played in the AHL and ECHL for four seasons before heading to Europe to play for SG Cortina in Italy in 2011. After four seasons there, he moved to Scotland to play for the Fife Flyers, where he's spent the past two seasons. Now he's on to England.
