North Bay's Brady Lyle is leaving North America to play hockey in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) next season with Dynamo Minsk.

Lyle, who turns 25 in June, was slated to become a Group VI unrestricted free agent on July 1 after playing for the Calgary Flames affiliate, the Calgary Wranglers this season where he recorded 6 goals and 9 assists for 15 points in 47 games with the Flames AHL affiliate. 

"Thank you Dynamo Minsk fans for all your messages of support already," said Lyle on Instagram about joining the team that plays out of Minsk, Belarus. 

"I am super excited to have signed with Minsk and cannot wait to get there, meet you all and make my debut with the team. It will be awesome and I am really looking forward to it."

The Wranglers were the third AHL team Lyle has played for since joining the Providence Bruins (Boston Bruins AHL affiliate) in 2020-21 where he had 7 goals and 7 assists for 14 points in only 25 games.  

The former 2015 North Bay Battalion first-round pick was traded from the Bruins to the St. Louis Blues midway through the 2021-22 season, and he wasn’t tendered a qualifying offer by the Blues following the 2022-23 season and became an unrestricted free agent.

Lyle signed with the Flames during the 2023 off-season. Projected as a power play specialist, Lyle missed a significant amount of time due to injury. When he returned he was moved to the second power play unit and did not end up dressing for any Wranglers playoff games.
