Lions Strengthen Defence with Trotter

The Lee Valley Lions are thrilled to announce the addition of defenceman Joe Trotter for the 2018-19 season.

Trotter returns to ice hockey after nine years away from the game, with the Lions hoping that the 6’0 tall blueliner can add some muscle to the defence corps.

Joe was a Lee Valley junior for many years, starting in the Under-12 side and making his way up through the age groups to the U19s. In his final season of U19 hockey, the hard-hitting defenceman tallied six assists as well as taking 75 penalty minutes.

After taking a year out of the game, Joe then graduated to senior hockey in the 2008-09 season with the Slough Harrier Hawks in ENL2, playing 22 games and scoring one assist. He came up against the Lions four times that season, with Lee Valley winning three of the four encounters between the sides.

To date, 2008-09 is Joe’s only season of senior hockey – until this season, as the Newham native returns to the Den to renew acquaintances with the sport.
