The Sheffield Steelers have confirmed the departure of goalie Brad Day.
Day joined the Steelers in 2015 and played an important role within the club under both Paul Thompson and Tom Barrasso’s reign.
Brad played in 31 games (16w and 13l) for the club, icing 1112 minutes. Day registered a saves % of 90.64 and a goals against average of just 2.68.
“I’ve had the best time and the best hockey education possible,” said Day “I can’t thank the club, my team-mates, coaches and of course the fans, who have always been incredibly kind and generous in their support of me
“The time has come to obtain a starting position with a new side. I want to be a starting goalie for the Steelers one day and to do that I need to go away and play games and progress that way.
“I’m sad to be leaving but inside if I want to progress than I know this is the right thing to do”
Captain Jonathan Phillips paid tribute to Brad saying “It won’t be the same without him that’s for sure. I admire his decision though to move away to further his career. I did that a long time ago and I never looked back. Everyone inside and outside of the dressing room wishes Brad the very best of luck. He is a terrific goalie and even better team-mate”
Brad’s new team will confirm his arrival on Thursday morning in a separate media release.
