Prolific Hook seals new Lightning deal

Lewis Hook has agreed his fourth season with MK Lightning.

The 20-year-old was Lightning’s top scorer in the EPL last term, with 39 goals and 37 assists in 63 games.

Head Coach Pete Russell said: “I’m delighted that Lewis is staying with us. In the past few seasons he’s evolved his game in a big way – he’s always put up the points, but now he’s a more complete player.

“Last season he became a man – a guy who played in every situation: powerplay, penalty kill and of course five-on-five.

“He played with big responsibility on a top end team and bangs in 39 goals as well. He just gets better and better in my view, and I think people forget he’s only 20-years-old.

“The coming season will be a big transition for him but it’s what he needs now – I know he’ll embrace it and it’ll take his game to another level.”
