Playing career[edit]

Juniors[edit]

Erne began his juniors career with the Indiana Ice of the United States Hockey League. In his one season, he recorded 10 goals and 18 points over 45 games. The Ice's head coach, Charlie Skjodt, told The Hockey News that Erne often led the team in hits.[1]

On April 1, 2014, the Lightning signed Erne to an entry-level contract.[2]

In his final season with the Quebec Remparts, Erne was awarded the Guy Lafleur Trophy as the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff most valuable player, following the teams game seven President Cup final victory.[3] The Remparts ultimately fell to the Kelowna Rockets in the 2015 Memorial Cup.[4] During the regular season, Erne recorded 41 goals and 45 assists for 86 points, along with a plus-21 and 102 penalty minutes.[5]

Professional[edit]

On September 19, 2013, the NHL Department of Player safety announced that Erne would have a hearing for an incident during a preseason game against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. In the first period, Erne was assessed a minor penalty for an illegal check to the head for a hit on St. Louis forward Vladimir Sobotka. Sobotka left the game after the hit and did not return.[6] On the same day, the NHL announced that Erne had been suspended for three preseason games for delivering an illegal check to the head of Sobotka.[7]

On January 2, 2017, the Lightning recalled Erne from the Syracuse Crunch.[8] On January 3, 2017, Lightning head coach, Jon Cooper, informed the media that Erne would be making his NHL debut.[9] Erne found out that he was making his NHL debut when he walked into the room that morning and saw his number on the board.[10] Erne made his NHL debut that night against the Winnipeg Jets.[11] On March 3, 2017, Erne recorded his first career NHL goal and point against the Pittsburgh Penguins at PPG Paints Arena.[12]
