Streatham IHC are delighted to announce the signing of powerful Canadian forward Alex Roberts ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

The 24 year old hails from Burnaby, British Colombia and recently iced with Utica College in New York State. He previously played junior with Brooks Bandits and arrives in London for his first taste of European ice hockey.

“We have been searching most of the summer to fill our second import spot and we are very fortunate to have secured Alex’s signature for the upcoming season” explained Coach Jeremy Cornish.

“He has excellent size that will add to the much larger team we will have this season. Alex has good hands and speed from the reports I have had back and it’s tough to find players that have that unique skill set.”

“He will be able to play in all situations and I’m looking forward to seeing how he links up with our returning faces and the new signings we have made this summer. I would also like to thank Graham and Dawn for making this signing possible, they have been instrumental in helping me improve the team from a year ago.”

Roberts will arrive in the UK ahead of our opening Challenge games against Swindon Wildcats on 8th and 9th September before our league campaign begins on 15 September against Milton Keynes in South London.

“Playing hockey overseas has always been a dream of mine, and after speaking with coach Cornish I’m looking forward to the opportunity and excited to get things going" said Roberts. "I believe that I can bring size and my offensive ability will help the team win some hockey games.”
