18 year old defenceman Tyler Plews joined the Edinburgh Capitals in the summer of 2015. Last season was Tyler’s first as a professional player and he played 53 games in the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) scoring one goal and three assists. Prior to last season Plews developed in the Scottish National League (SNL) and in total played 44 games at that level scoring 41 points.
The player recently signed a 2 year extension with the Edinburgh Capitals that will keep him with the club until 2018.
Edinburgh Capitals Elite League coach Michal Dobron said of Plews “Tyler had a strong first season as a professional having stepped up to Elite League level. He’s a quality young Scottish defenceman who plays with aggression and I believe he will prove an important player for us over the next two seasons and hopefully beyond”.
