Hong Kong International Jordan Ho is a Lion

The Lee Valley Lions are delighted to announce Hong Kong international forward Jordan Ho as our non-British trained player for the 2019-20 season.

Jordan, full name Sun Yin Ho, started his career in the China International Hockey League Hong Kong (CIHL HK) with the Macau Aces, scoring nine points in ten games in the 2012-13 season.

At the end of that season, he represented Hong Kong internationally for the first time; scoring eight points in seven games as his side lost to Chinese Taipei in the final of the Challenge Cup of Asia. He also won the award for the best plus/minus in that tournament with +22.

He then moved to the UK, representing the Sheffield Bears in BUIHA (British Universities Ice Hockey Association) competition between 2013 and 2017.
During this time, he also played 12 games for the Sheffield Senators in NIHL North 1, scoring one goal and five assists.

In the summer of 2017 he made the switch to Oxford, representing both the Oxford University Blues and the Oxford Vikings in the BUIHA over the last two seasons.

During his entire BUIHA career, he racked up 68 goals and 49 assists for a total of 117 points across 57 games.

He has also represented Hong Kong in Division 3 of the IIHF World Championships four times, scoring a total of 19 points in 21 games between 2014 and 2018.

Now he joins the Lions for the new season, and will be expected to add firepower to the side’s forward ranks.
