Andrew Lord (born February 22, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently the player/coach for the Cardiff Devils in the Elite Ice Hockey League.[1]

Career[edit]

Lord attended the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, from 2004 to 2008, where he played ice hockey, while earning a degree in business management.

He launched his professional career in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL), where he spent two and a half years with the Wheeling Nailers, before moving to the American Hockey League (AHL), signing with the Oklahoma City Barons in late December 2010.[2] He had to sit out the 2011-12 season with an injury.

In 2012, Lord took up on offer from Germany and inked a deal with second-division side SC Riessersee.[3] After spending one year in Germany, he signed with the Cardiff Devils of the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) for the 2013-14 season.[4] Showing his scoring ability, he tallied 23 goals and 36 assists in 60 games during his first year there. Prior to his second year with the Devils (2014–15), he accepted the position as player/coach and kept his scoring hot, chipping in with 23 goals and 38 assists in 62 contests, guiding his team to the EIHL Challenge Cup title and a third-place finish in the EIHL, while receiving All-EIHL Coach of the Year honors.[5]
