The 36-year old arrived at the Swindon Ice Arena ahead of the 2013-14 season after 12 months at Basingstoke Bison, which followed distinguished years in the Elite Ice Hockey League with the Cardiff Devils as well as a whole host of other clubs.


Cardiff-born Lyle began his career with his hometown club, graduating to the senior side quickly to make twenty senior-team appearances in 1994-95. Such was his talent, Lyle went on to feature for the GB U20s and full Senior team a season later – a role with the national side that he is still fulfilling some twenty-one seasons later.


He went on to ice for several top British sides, and even gained top cult status with the Devils and is well on his way to achieving the same with the Cats.


Initially joining the club on a one-year contract awarded under former Wildcats coach Ryan Aldridge, Lyle became a major signing and after hinting that he may hang up his gloves, he was persuaded to continue and became player-coach at the club in 2015-16 with Aldridge stepping down from the position.


Lyle himself, stepped down from the role just two months in to that campaign, but remained as netminder when Aaron Nell stepped up to the position and his impressive form continued and he has been rewarded with a new three-year deal which will see him remain at the club until the end of the 2018-19 season.  Rounding off a great 2015-16, Lyle picked up the Dave Richardson Award at the End of Season Presentation evening which follows on from the Players “Player of the Year” award that he won in 2014-15.


Lyle is also appointed as netminder coach with the Okanagan Hockey Academy (UK) U16s and U18s sides.
