The latest addition to the Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning roster is Wisconsin, US-born forward Trevor Morbeck.

Morbeck, 25, plays right wing and moves to the Lightning for his first taste of professional hockey after four seasons combining his studies with playing for the University of Guelph in Ontario.  Whilst playing for the Gryphons, Trevor studied on the university’s Food, Agriculture & Economics programme.

Prior to his collegiate hockey Trevor spent six seasons honing his skills in the OHL, progressing to the USHL with Muskegon Lumberjacks.

Standing at 6’2” and weighing 209lbs, Trevor will bring a physical presence to Lightning’s offensive threat.  The OHL scouting report praised him as being “a big winger with some physical tools – he skates well for a bigger man, hard to move in front of from the net.”

Trevor said he is looking forward to developing his game under the direction of Coach McKay: “I am excited about joining up with the MK Lightning!  Doug has a lot of experience coaching where he will help me grow and develop as a player. I am really looking forward to the opportunity to play alongside elite athletes, living in a different country and learning the culture and history that comes with it.”

Trevor Morbeck’s warm up, home and away jerseys are now available on our Own and Loan Scheme. The scheme sees your name on the back of his jersey for the season.  The match-worn jersey is then presented to you by the player at the end of the 2018-19 season, a unique memento of your favourite player’s performances in the Elite League!  For full details and to apply, email
