Chris Blight (born October 14, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger who currently plays for the Dundee Stars of Elite Ice Hockey League.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Blight played four-years of hockey for Clarkson University of the NCAA starting in 2001. He was ranked 156th in the NHL draft by NHL central scouting for the 2002 draft. After college hockey he signed with the Toledo Storm of the ECHL as an undrafted free agent. A prolific scoring career in the ECHL allowed him to be signed by many AHL teams during his four-year career in North America. He was signed by the Reading Royals on 4 October 2010.[2]

On 25 July 2011, Blight signed with Ritten Renon of Italy's Serie A.[3] On 8 June 2012, Blight moved to the United Kingdom to sign with the Cardiff Devils of the EIHL.[4] where he is currently playing in the 2013–14 season.[5] Blight now plays for the EIHL Gardiner Conference Champions Dundee Stars.
