When the curtain came down on Lewis Hook’s debut 2018-19 season in Belfast, he was an EIHL League, Challenge Cup and Erhardt Conference Champion. His debut as a senior Team GB international was to follow in 2020-21; another mile marker in the rise of a young British winger still loaded with potential.
Hook iced for his hometown Peterborough Phantoms from the age of 16, climbing through the ranks of the youth system before making his senior debut in the then-EPIHL in 2012/13.
Splitting his time between the Phantoms and Milton Keynes Lightning, Hook notched 86 goals and 102 assists over 253 total games played in the EPIHL.
At the same time, he was making waves in the international system, progressing through the GB U16 and U18 squads, before winning gold at the World Junior Championships in 2014/15 with GB U20.
It was no surprise that the EIHL began to take notice.
Following brief appearances between 2014 and 2016 for Coventry Blaze and Nottingham Panthers, Hook broke into the Elite League on a full-time basis when the EPIHL Champion MK Lightning briefly joined the top tier.
In his two seasons there, he shared a locker room with beloved former Giants Jonathan Boxill and Matt Nickerson and caught the attention of Belfast by clinching the record for most goals and points for a British U23, making the move across the Irish Sea in 2018-19.
Fast forward to 2021 and Hook’s upward trajectory continues in earnest. A Champion, a GB international, and nowhere near finished.
