Former Great Britain goalie to attend Scottish Ice Hockey training camp

Former Great Britain netminder Stevie Lyle will take part in Scottish Ice Hockey’s five-day training camp at Dundee Ice Arena in early August.

Lyle will join current GB national development head coach Tony Hand, GB U16 coach Natalie Aldridge and numerous other coaches to oversee off-ice training, classroom sessions and a maximum of 3-1/2 hours ice time for each player.

The Cardiff-born goalie enjoyed a distinguished playing career icing for the likes of Cardiff Devils, Belfast Giants and Basingstoke Bison, before joining Swindon Wildcats in 2013.

He retired after the 2016/17 season and was inducted into the UK Ice Hockey Hall of Fame earlier this year.

“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work with Scottish Ice Hockey this summer,” said Lyle.

“As we saw with Scotland’s victory over England in the recent under 19 international game at Sheffield, there are some talented players coming through the system and that is testament to the hard work being put in by coaches at all levels.

“I’m looking forward to attending the sessions at Dundee and helping to develop the next wave of players to come out of Scotland.”
