The Sheffield Steelers would like to thank Evan McGrath for his time and service with the club last year.
It’s understood that Evan has announced his retirement from the game after 13 years a professional.
Evan top-scored for the Steelers last year with 13 goals and 50 points in 58 league and play-off games.
In an illustrious career, McGrath was drafted by Detroit Red Wings in 2004 and went onto play three years in the AHL for Grand Rapid Griffins and the Syracuse Crunch.
In 2015 Evan moved to Sweden where he spent time in both the SHL and Allsvenskan before joining Hockey Thurgar in the Austrian EBEL league in 2016.
12 months later Germany became the next destination with a move to the DEL 2 with Kassel Huskies where he played with former Steeler Stefan Della Rovere.
Everyone at the Steelers wishes Evan well in his retirement and future career and thanks him for his time and effort with the club.
