Otters add Troy native Messier to back end

The Erie Otters announced today that they have added defenseman Lyon Messier to their roster.

The 20 year-old Troy native started the 2007-08 season with the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League where he played four games without registering a point.

The previous two seasons, Messier, who stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 205 pounds, played for the Texas Tornado of the North American Hockey League. In 112 games with the Tornado, he collected five goals and 32 assists for 37 points to go along with 86 penalty minutes.

Messier is scheduled to make his Otters debut tonight when Erie travels to Sarnia to face the Sting.
