Milton Keynes Lightning have signed 24-year-old defenceman Clay Anderson from Danish side Aalborg Pirates ahead of the new Elite League season.

The Nebraska native helped the Pirates scoop both the Metal Ligaen championship and the AL-Bank Cup during his time with the organisation, registering 24 points in 50 league games for the side before adding 10 points in 17 playoff games.

Prior to his move to Europe, Anderson attended Harvard University, appearing in 126 NCAA games for the Harvard Crimson across four seasons, winning NCAA (ECAC) Championships in 2015 and 2017.

During that span he scored seven goals and 44 points.

“I had very good reports about Clay’s abilities,” Lightning Head Coach Doug McKay said “he reads the game really well and I know he will be strong for us.  He is ambitious and hard-working, and I know he will be a good fit for this team in a very competitive Elite League.”

Anderson will be the Lightning’s 13th new signing for the 2018/19 season, as McKay looks to help the Buckinghamshire side build on it’s 11th placed finish in the Elite League last season, following his appointment earlier this summer.
