He’s an exciting and dynamic young player and one of the hottest prospects in the NIHL, so we are delighted that Milique Martelly has committed to AIB MKL for 2022/23. Milique joins us on a full MKL contract, with a 2 way in place with Streatham to allow him to appear for them when appropriate.
18 year old Milique started life as a roller hockey player, and first took to skates when he was just 18 months old. He started playing competitive junior hockey around 8 years ago, and has developed quickly into one of the country’s top defensive prospects.
Alongside his 2 way with AIB MKL last year, he has spent his entire career so far with Streatham, Captaining the U15 and U18 sides and managed to pick up over a point per game through his career, even at senior level in the NIHL 1, where he’s scored 7 goals and 23 assists in 31 games. This is thanks to his mobility, confidence and willingness to get up the ice. For MKL last year he made 16 appearances.
AIB MKL’s Tim Wallace had this to say about Milique’s return: “Milique is an exciting player. He is a strong skater, and shows composure with the puck and is not afraid to carry it up the ice. As he matures, experience will build his decision making and tactical skills, and I’m looking forward to working with him on these and his overall game this year. At 18, he’s got a great attitude and work ethic and I see a great career ahead of him. Milique is exactly the type of player I want to be working with.”
Milique had this to say about signing with AIB MKL: “It feels amazing to be back with MK again and I can’t wait to get started. I feel like I still have a lot to prove and playing under two coaches like Tim and Joe will help a lot with my development. The team will be hungrier than ever after the disappointing end to the season and the wait feels longer than ever. I can’t wait to get back out on the ice to play in front of the fans and win trophies.”
Please welcome on a two way Milique Martelly.
