Biography

Alex got his first taste for hockey with Elgin Ice Hockey Club near his hometown, Mosstowie. Aged just 14 he moved to Ontario, Canada with his family, where he further developed his skills in a local hockey academy where he began to rise through the ranks. In the 2013-14 season his efforts were recognised with selection for Great Britain U18’s – alongside Lewis Hook, Glenn Billing and Jordan Hedley – making five appearances in that season’s World Junior Championships.

The following season GB Head Coach – now Lightning Head Coach – Pete Russell gave Forbes his debut at U20 level. In his second WJC campaign with the U20s, Alex played in every match scoring three assists – contributing to the team’s promotion.

For the last three campaigns Alex has played in the colours of Ogden Mustangs and, in the season just ended, scored an impressive 61 points in 49 matches (27 goals and 34 assists) – captaining the side to the league championship.
