Head coach Aaron Fox believes he could be just a day away from completing his 2023-24 roster for the Steelers
“We are close” he said “maybe even just a day away”
Steelers still have two goalies and three forwards to announce, with visa and work permit paperwork well underway “It’s been a busy summer and hopefully we are close to the end of the recruitment process” said Fox “It will be nice when the roster is complete and then we can focus on training camp ahead of the two exhibition games against Nottingham and Cardiff (Saturday 9th and Saturday 16th September at the Arena)
On his final signing Fox confirmed “well it’s a forward, we have had the goaltending situation sorted for a while. The offer has been made and we believe it is acceptable, the player is just weighing up some other options, we will know one way or the other within 24/48 hours”
“We will have nine new faces, 10 if you include Cole, for camp so that intense two week period is crucial for us. The four games will be important so all the guys get a good feeling on the ice and get back into the stride of things
“Speaking to all the guys old and new, they are all excited to arrive and get going. Things are in place back in Sheffield as far as housing which is always important.
“We have many of the working visa’s through and are waiting on just a few more
“In no time at all we will be on the ice and hard at it”
Steelers have confirmed that there won’t be any signing announcements this week.
Steelers play four exhibition games, two at home and two on the road against Nottingham Panthers and Cardiff Devils.
