Lee looking forward to Blaze opportunity

Canadian forward Derek Lee "cannot wait to get started" after joining Genting Casino Coventry Blaze for the 2014/15 Elite League campaign.

The 24-year-old native of North Vancouver, British Columbia, split last season - his first as a pro - in Europe with Tonsberg Vikings in Norway and Sterzing/Vipiteno Broncos in Italy.
 
He registered 21 points (seven goals and 14 assists) in 23 games for the Vikings and 11 points (seven goals and four assists) in 15 outings with the Broncos.
 
Lee said: "I'm very excited to be part of the Blaze for the upcoming season and cannot wait to get started.
 
"I've heard a lot of good things about the league and the Blaze organisation. Playing in the UK and for the Blaze sounded like a great situation for me and I'm happy for the opportunity.
 
"I had great experiences in Norway and Italy where I got to play some great hockey in my first year overseas. I really enjoyed my time in both countries. I learned a lot and am looking forward to continuing that in Coventry.
 
"I consider myself a play-making forward who looks to set up team-mates. I'm looking to come in and work hard and help the team the best way I can.
 
"The Blaze have made some really solid signings and I'm looking forward to playing with a lot of great players. Obviously working hard and giving ourselves an opportunity to win a championship as a team is the ultimate goal."
 
Lee had previously spent four years in the NCAA with the University of Wisconsin, posting 58 points (11 goals and 47 assists) in 101 games - winning a championship in 2012/13 when he was also an assistant captain.
 
Before that Lee iced for Salmon Arm SilverBacks and Victoria Grizzlies in the BCHL, totalling 174 points (48 goals and 126 assists) in 155 appearances over three years.
 
He helped the Grizzlies to the regular-season title in 2008/09 and and was named the team's most inspirational player.
 
Lee also iced for Team British Columbia at the 2007 Canada Winter Games and was on the Canada West side which won the World Junior A Challenge gold medal the same year.

Blaze fuelled by CMB Catering

CMB

The Blaze players will once again be fuelled by Cheryl Brookes and her team from CMB Catering for the 2014/15 season. CMB have been supporting the Blaze for many years and the club are delighted to have them back on board.

Blaze Operations Manager Rob Coleman said, “Cheryl and her team do a fantastic job of catering for the team for away games and after home matches, and it’s great to see them back with the club for another season. It’s great that many of our supporters have used them for catering their own parties and events – I can vouch for the superb job they do as they even catered for my own wedding!”

Owner of CMB Catering, Cheryl Brookes added, “Working with the Blaze has certainly kept me on my toes over the years! With ice hockey being such a demanding sport, it’s so important for the players to get refuelled properly after games and it’s my job to make sure that happens.  

“It’s also great to be a player sponsor as well and I’m looking forward to that again next season. I’ve got to know some fantastic players over the years and it’s great to know I’m playing my part in helping the club. I’m delighted to be continuing my involvement.”

Blaze bring in Lee

Genting Casino Coventry Blaze can confirm the signing of Canadian forward Derek Lee for the 2014/15 Elite League campaign.

 
The 24-year-old native of North Vancouver, British Columbia, split last season - his first as a pro - in Europe with Tonsberg Vikings in Norway and Sterzing/Vipiteno Broncos in Italy.
 
He registered 21 points (seven goals and 14 assists) in 23 games for the Vikings and 11 points (seven goals and four assists) in 15 outings with the Broncos.

Lee also iced for Team British Columbia at the 2007 Canada Winter Games and was on the Canada West side which won the World Junior A Challenge gold medal the same year.
 
Coach Marc LeFebvre said: "I am very pleased to have Derek in a Blaze jersey this season. He is a creative and dynamic centre who will bring offence and speed to our line-up.

"Derek is a young pro who will only get better as a player. I expect him to be responsible at both ends of the rink and be strong in the face-off circle.

"Every player we have signed fits into a role and all bring different elements with them to our line-up. Derek fits into what we are trying to build and will help bring us success this season. 

"I am pleased with how our roster is shaping up so far but we still have some holes to fill. We are close on a couple of other players and hopefully we will have some more signing news in the next little while."

Lee joins Mike Egener, Cale Tanaka, Ashley Tait, Russell Cowley, Ross Venus, James Griffin, Steven Chalmers, Mark Smith, Steven Goertzen, Connor Ranby, Ryan O'Marra, Kyle Bochek, Jereme Tendler and Brian Stewart on the roster for next season.
