Fan-favourite Chris Lawrence returns to Fife
Fife Flyers are delighted to welcome back physical forward Chris Lawrence to Kirkcaldy for the 2022/23 Elite Ice Hockey League season.
Lawrence made an instant impact when he joined the club halfway through last season, but it was curtailed when he suffered a freak accident on the ice which broke his ankle.
The 35-year-old Canadian has a wealth of experience having iced 181 times in the AHL between 2007 and 2010 before making the switch to the UK in 2014 when he joined the Nottingham Panthers. He has also iced for the Sheffield Steelers, Coventry Blaze and captained the Dundee Stars.
Also commenting, Fife Flyers head coach and GM Todd Dutiaume said:
"When Chris arrived in January there was a shift in the team both on and off the ice. On ice he became crucial in draws and the team played more confidently with his physicality and leadership.
"Off ice his passion for the game, dedication and physical fitness instantly motivated guys.
"Chris will once again be a pivotal member of the team providing leadership and experience from the beginning."
