As we look to further drive the quality and depth of our squad, we are formalising something that has been working well for us across a number of games this season. We’re therefore chuffed that Logan Prince has agreed to join us as a permanent member of the Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning team. We’re particularly pleased after the fantastic shift that Logan put in during our roadtrip win at Raiders.
22 year old Swindon born Logan has had stints with Swindon, Bristol and MK teams in the past and if you’ve seen him play you’ll already know that he’s a hard working two way forward who puts in the energy in the neutral zone to support our attack.
MK Lightning Head Coach Lewis Clifford had this to say: “Having had Logan play for me for the past 2 years I know what he is able to bring to the team, he has as high a work rate as you will find and he does exactly what is asked of him every time he steps on the ice. Logan has done everything I have asked of him both in the past and in his appearances so far this season and I am happy to be able to add him to our roster for the remainder of the season.”
Logan is similarly happy saying: “I’m really excited to be joining Lightning for the remainder of the season. I’m looking forward to pushing my game to the next level and developing further. I have played for Cliff for a few years and alongside a few of the current Lightning team and I know what is expected of me and I will do my very best to meet those expectations.”
We very much recognise that Logan’s step up has an effect on our MK hockey family as he’s joining from MK Thunder. We discussed his move with Thunder GM Lauren and Coach Antti to explain that we see great potential in him and want to support his development and that to do that we wanted him to join us on a full time basis. Cliff gave his thanks to them both: “Antti and Lauren at MK Thunder have been very understanding and helpful and I would like to thank them for allowing Logan to leave and take the next step in his hockey career.”
Logan will wear the number 49 shirt and it’s available for Own and Loan from 7pm tomorrow. Details here https://www.mk-lightning.co.uk/fanzone/own-and-loan/
In those discussions with Thunder we have agreed with them an offer for our Season Ticket holders gives a great way to see them play. When Lightning are playing away and Thunder are at home Season Ticket holders can get into a Thunder game for just a fiver! So why not give them a try?
