The 23 year old will enter his 4th season with the Devils having previously iced for the Slough Jets, Wightlink Raiders & the Basingstoke Bison across the ENL & EPL respectively. During that time Lock has iced over 160 times in 7 seasons with the highlight being when he lifted the ENL 2 title with Slough in 2011.

Speaking on his return Lock is looking to continue to progress with the team

“I feel really good about re signing with Solent. Ever since i joined 3 years ago, under Muzza we have gone from strength to strength and it has been brilliant to be part of it. Im hoping to continue helping the team in way possible. It is has always been such a fantastic atmosphere in the dressing room and i cant wait to be back with the team. We need to be challenging for title this year, the team Muzza is putting together is very strong and with plenty of NIHL 1 experience we should be right in the title mix from day 1.”

The Chertsey born defender who will wear the number #71 jersey is another key piece to head coach Alex Murray’s jigsaw

“Locky is another guy that I have know since juniors. He has always been a reliably guy on the ice and will put his body on the line for the team. His shot blocking is exceptional and his knowledge of the game benefits him greatly. I’m looking for Ben to take more responsibility his year as he steps up into a more senior role within the team. The younger defenders will need guidance and Locky has a lot of experience for someone so young that he can share.”
