Lucas Price signs new deal with Telford Tigers

The 19-year-old will now enter his third season with the Tigers after an injury-hit campaign last time out.

Head coach Tom Watkins says he has a high level of skill and it was disappointing he was injured last campaign.

He said: “We really missed Lucas last season, he was out for a few months with injury which was a real shame for us and him. He plays with an edge, a lot of dirt, which I think distracts you from seeing his overall skill level, which is very high.

“He’s got a great IQ for a young player, he understands the intricacies of the game and technically, as I said, he’s very talented.

“He is a player who can play up and down, can provide offense, can be part of a closed line with his strong defensive game and anticipates to be a big part of the penalty kill. I’m delighted he’s agreed to come back.”

While Price said: “I’m really excited to sign for a third year at Telford, I think since I’ve been here Tom (Watkins) has really helped me develop my game and I’m excited for what the year will bring future. Although it was a very tough end to last year for me personally, I can’t wait to get back on the ice.

I think from the end of last season, next season is going to be a promising one and I think we have a very good chance of finding something to show for him!”
