Les Is Back For The Best Of British

spacer

Former Coventry Blaze ice hockey star, Les Millie, will be making a return appearance for the team for the Best of British match against Milton Keynes Kings on Thursday.

The talented Scot  joined the Blaze in their first year (1996-97) and formed a devastating line with Steve Chartrand and Luc Chabot, scoring 49 goals and 78 assists in just 59 games that season in the Premier Ice Hockey League (the pre-cursor of the Findus British National League).

Millie retired at the end of that year but agreed to return at Christmas the following season to help the club out in their challenge for the English Championship. He resumed his partnership with Chartrand and Chabot to amass 51 goals and 68 assists. Despite playing only a season and a half, these totals make Millie the Blaze's all-time 4th highest scorer.

In addition to his scoring ability, Millie is also a determined player with a strong desire to win. He is also the Blaze's all-time 6th leading penalty minute taker.

Millie started his career in Fife and played for the Flyers from 1987-1992 before moving to Sheffield to join the Steelers for three immensely successful years, scoring 152 goals for the Steelers in the old Premier League. He returned to Fife for 1995-96 and then moved south to join the Blaze.

In addition to the return of Millie, the Blaze will be guesting a number of young British players to make up the squad for the Best of British, including two youngsters from Sheffield Steelers, Keith Leyland and Steve Dacombe.

The game will be the teamís first in this yearís Best of British competition and takes place on Thursday 20 December at the Skydome Arena in Coventry. Face Off 7.30pm. Special admission prices apply of £4 for adults and £1 all concessions.
