About

Lewis, 25, is a skilful, stay-at-home D-man whose talent as he honed his skills in his native Scotland saw him earn selection for the Great Britain U18 team which won Gold at the World Junior Championship in 2006.

The 2007-08 season saw Lewis ply his trade in the Elite League for the Belfast Giants – one of his teammates in defence being another Lightning returnee this year, Leigh Jamieson. Nick Poole signed Christie for Milton Keynes in the summer of 2008 and the MK Arena has been the Scot’s base ever since. He earned another GB call-up in the 2008-09 season where, coached by Pete Russell, the U20 team took home silver medals from the World Junior Championships.

Coach’s Comments

“I’m delighted Lewis has agreed terms and will be back with us for another season. He plays very well in the 1 on 1 situations, uses his stick well, takes up good ice position and plays the body very well – and has strong communication skills, which is vital in the battle.

“This season I want to see Lewis be more confident on the puck, be moving and looking at options and make a good first pass every time, after he has worked hard to gain possession. This is vital to his game and to our team on the transition to offence.

“I am excited to be working with Lewis. He is very coach-able and wants to continue to develop his game on and off the ice. These are the type of guys I want in my our changing room. Lewis is underrated in what he brings to a team and our defensive core is a lot stronger with him on it.”
