At 6pm this evening it was announced on twitter that Milton Keynes Lightning coach Doug McKay has signed David Norris for the 2018–19 campaign.
The 25 year old Calgary native has been signed straight from the NCAA and Arizona State University.
On the evening of his last game, head coach Greg Powers spoke to a local newspaper. “We’re going to miss Dave, we’re going to miss his family but they’ll always be a big part of our program…”
Doug McKay also spoke of the 6’2, 205lb prospect.” David is going to be a player that I believe will adapt well to the UK league. He has good size and he’s a good skater. Although unproven at a professional level, he has a great work ethic, attitude a D shows great promise in his ability on the ice. He deserves the opportunity to prove himself on a professional stage and I am excited to see him grow with us. “
