Elite League side Nottingham Panthers will start their Continental Cup campaign at the the third-round stage in Denmark.

The Panthers won the competition back in 2017 and this season will come up against hosts Vojens, Amiens and a qualifier from the previous stage.

The four-team tournament runs from 15th to 17th November and the group winners will advance to the final in January 2020.
