Former Erie Otters, Brian Lee and Jason Robinson find themselves playing over the pond in Great Britain’s EIHL. Both are members of the Coventry Blaze, a team that currently sits atop the standings in a tight three team battle in the eight team league.

Coventry is the 9th largest city in England with a population of just over 300,000. The team plays out of an arena with a capacity for hockey around 2600, including standing room.

Brian Lee played for the Otters from 2000-01 to 2004-05. He was drafted by the Anaheim Ducks but an NHL career never panned out. He split time between the ECHL and AHL from 2005-06 to 2007-08 before jumping to Briancon of the Ligue Magnus in France for the 2008-09 season. This is his first season with the Blaze.

Jason Robinson was a Niagara Falls Thunder in 1995-96 and an Otter for 1996-97 and 1997-98. Jason was a Tampa Bay Lightning draft pick but like Brian Lee, never played in the NHL. Jason is in his sixth season in the EIHL. This is his first back after a three year hiatus when he played a season in Italy and two in the IHL.erie otters ohl logo
