Steelers are delighted to confirm the return of exciting forward Brett Neumann for the 2023-24 Elite League season.
Neumann scored 26 goals and 59 points in all competitions for the club last season, his first in the UK.
“I’m Looking forward to having Neumms back for another year” said head coach Aaron Fox “He’s a guy we counted on all year in all situations and he put up solid numbers for his first year.”
“Brett plays with a ton of pace and is willing to get to the hard areas for a smaller guy.”
Having Neumann return for a second season is also something that Fox is excited about “He now knows the league and what to expect so I think he will only improve off of last year’s numbers.”
Neumann agreed “I think knowing the league, teams, the buildings we play in and many of the same players we go up against will be an advantage for me, having the experience from last year will put me in a good place.”
Last season’s experience with the Steelers has Neumann wanting to come back for more “last year we had a great group of people in the team and around the club but we didn’t get the job done and that lingers with me, I have the desire to go that extra step and win a championship, it does feel like unfinished business.
“I like the league format where every game matters and you have to play as hard in October as you do in March. Every game counts and there isn’t an easy night in the Elite League, I think as a player that’s what you want.
“I can’t wait to get started again and see everyone in September.”
Brett Neumann will be back in Orange on Saturday 9th September when the Steelers take on Nottingham Panthers in their first exhibition game of the new season.
After pre-season fixtures with Nottingham and Cardiff, the Steelers will commence their league campaign on Saturday 23rd September with a home opener (full schedule to be confirmed by the league shortly).
