It has been confirmed that the MK Lightning’s Kyle Essery is on his way to Lyon for the 18/19 season.
While with the Milton Keynes side Essery racked up 15 points (7G, 8A) in 42 games. While his scoring might not have been considered much, he was a firm fan favourite for the Buckinghamshire side and he’ll be sorely missed.
According to Mitja Sivic, Essery has all the qualities to become a leader of the Lyon squad next season:”He’s really a hard-working player, he works a lot, he’s very good in face-off and very interesting in powerplay. He is an incredible leader and a very good guy. He will easily find his place in the squad and will become an important part of the team. We are excited to have a player like him signed for next season. ”
We wish you all the best Kyle, but now who do we sing for?
