This evening, the Solent Devils are delighted to announce the return of the bright young forward, Elliot Lewis.
Lewis with 60 games so far for Solent Devils, collecting 16 Goals and 11 Assists comments on signing
“I will bring what I think I bring best which is energy!”
“I’d like to think of myself as a very active player meaning that whenever I’m on the ice I will give my all, in whatever way I can to help put points in the bag. As that’s what it all comes down to in the end.”
Head Coach – Alex Murray commented
“Elliot is a great player for us, he is ready for his breakout season and I fully suspect this to be his year, he will be given every possibility to succeed and the experienced players will help him through.
Elliot is fast skilful and has solid strength for a kid so young, I cannot wait to see how he performs this season!”
Looking ahead Lewis adds
“My goals are to perform as a more principal player within the squad this year. What I mean by that is being stronger both offensively and defensively but mainly contribute more to the special teams situations on penalty-kills and power plays.”
Lewis reflecting on the opportunity to play during lockdown
“The spring cup series was a brilliant experience for not only the boys but for the fans watching at home. It was great to see all the interaction over social media seeing all the fans enjoying watching us as much as we enjoyed playing. I think it was just what the Devils community needed as it really helped get us through the 3rd lockdown. After a tough period for everyone. “
Continuing Lewis says
“I think that as much as the last 18 months have been some really tough times for everyone. There are a lot of positives to take out of the unfortunate circumstances such as spending more time with my family which traditionally I don’t get a lot of time to do during the season, it was really nice to enjoy their company throughout the pandemic.”
Finally, about a favourite rink Lewis reveals
“I’d have to say ice Sheffield as it brings back many memories as a junior travelling up there every summer to play in the tournaments. Every time I play / go back there it’s a good reminder to realise where I’ve come within my time of playing hockey.”
Lewis will return to the Devils in shirt #19. If you would like to sponsor a Devil or become a team sponsor, contact email@example.com
