The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze are pleased to welcome 26-year-old defenceman Alex Miner Barron to the club for the remainder of the 2017/18 Elite League season.

The 6'1" right-shooter spent last season with Strasbourg of France where he led all Ligue Magnus defencemen for assists (26 in 44 regular season games). He also had three goals for a total of 29 points.

Before pro hockey, Miner Barron played three years of junior hockey with the North American Hockey League’s Bismarck Bobcats and United States Hockey League’s Indiana Ice and Waterloo Black Hawks. Being able to play both forward and defence, he then earned a scholarship to play NCAA Division I hockey at Quinnipiac University, going to the NCAA tournament four times, including two Frozen Four appearances, and winning an ECAC Hockey title.
