The Price is Right for Tigers! Telford Tigers are delighted to announce the signing of Lucas Price for the 2022/23 season.
Solihull-born, Lucas, the brother of current Tigers defender Jake, is 17 years old and a left-handed shot forward who spent last season with the Telford Tigers 2 team that won the Laidler League championship. Price scored 30 points in just 12 games and also appeared for the National League team on 2 occasions and managed to score his first National League goal. Price will wear the number 10 shirt.
Head Coach Tom Watkins, commented, “I don’t think anyone will be surprised to see Lucas move up to the National League team. He’s coming off the back of a superb season with our D2 team where he truly excelled and was a major contributor to the team’s success. He was very unfortunate not to feature very often with the National League team last season but I have every confidence in bringing him up, in him as a player, his ability and fully expect him to push his way up the line-up. He’s highly skilled, a good skater, can make plays and competes very hard, something that a lot of young kids don’t do or understand how to compete. Lucas is strong on the puck and gritty of it and will need to be aware of his defensive responsibilities but I’m really excited to see his progression this season.”
Lucas commented, “I’m really looking forward to playing for the Tigers this season. I think it’s a great opportunity to play at a very high level of hockey and I believe my game can really improve playing under a coach like Tom. Also, I will be able to learn from all the experienced players in the locker room, especially what they’ve done by winning the league in the past two seasons. I can’t wait to get started and hopefully win the league again.”
Own and loan shirts are available for £125 each (Home and Away). Please see the Tigers online shop for details.
