Simpson The latest Grand Slammer to Return.

“Lets defend our trophies” says Simmer

“Back to defend our titles” says Mark Simpson

Mark Simpson will be back with the Steelers this coming season after penning a new deal with head coach Aaron Fox

Simpson played 51 games for the club in our Grand Slam campaign scoring 13 goals and 32 points

“It was a simple no brainer for me” said Simpson “I loved the city, loved the club, my team mates and of course the fans. The chance to come back and defend our three title as well as the chance to play in the Champions League, I wasn’t walking away from that

“It was my first time winning at the pro level, it was such an incredible experience after such a year of highs and lows. The bond that group had is something none of us will forget

“We bought in from day one and I expect the group we have next year to do the same. I’m sure there will be a core group returning who will just want to keep on winning”

The CHL was an exciting addition to a second year as Simpson explained “We all want to play at the highest level, test ourselves individually and as a team. The CHL gives us that opportunity and I can’t wait to get started, I think we will surprise a few people for sure”

Head Coach Aaron Fox welcomed “Simmer” back to the team saying “Mark made a huge impact in our group last year and I couldn’t be happier to have him back in Orange.   

“He’s a guy that can play up and down our lineup and can create matchup issues against other teams top lines.   

“Simmser skates so well for his size and defensively shuts plays down quickly. 

“He was a top PK guy for us as well and was a player the 2nd half of the season.  He’s the type of player that if you want to win teams need”.
