The Sheffield Steelers have confirmed their first import signing that will be playing in the #2021EliteSeries.
28 year old Norwegian defensemen Adrian Saxrud Danielsen joins the Steelers from Austrian side HC Innsbruck
Danielsen has international experience with his Country’s national side as well as playing in Sweden, Denmark, Austria and in top league in his own Country with Storhamar and Lillehammer.
“Adrian is a big two-way defensive who skates extremely well” said head coach Aaron Fox.
“He likes to play a physical game and prides himself on being a shutdown defenseman. He has shown some offensive upside in Norway and I expect him to play in all situations when hooking up with us in a few week’s time.
“Most importantly he’s a true pro with high character and is coming here with a mindset to win and showcase his game. I’m looking forward to having him hear in Sheffield”.
The Steelers play their first game in the #2021EliteSeries against Nottingham Panthers at 7pm on Saturday 3rd April – all of the Steelers games will be streamed on Elite League TV.
