Mosey Has Unfinished Business with the Steelers.
Aaron Fox has confirmed the re-signing of Evan Mosey for a second year as a Steeler.
Mosey played 64 games in Orange last year as both a forward and a defenseman scoring 20 goals and 54 points.
Prior to his arrival in Sheffield the 33 year old had also iced for both the Nottingham Panthers and Cardiff Devils. His Elite league record shows 53 goals and 126 points in 171 games.
Fox commented “Evan came in and made a huge impact at both the Forward and Defense positions last year.
“He’s a guy who we relied on in all situations being a key guy on the Power Play and on our Penalty Kill.
“Evan’s skating is at an Elite level and we want to be a team that plays fast and really pushes the pace so having him back is a great asset for our team speed. It is such a huge benefit to have when building a roster that you know you have a Top 4 Defenseman if needed or a Top 9 Forward with him on the roster. It allows you to go best available with that last roster spot later in the summer”.
Mosey confirmed the move saying “It wasn’t a tough decision from my part, I enjoyed my time with the club and was treated well.
“I enjoy playing for Foxy, for the Steelers and in front of all of those incredible fans. It’s great to play in front of them night in night out, they certainly showed great support for me last year and I think all of us returning want to show them that we can compete for all the trophies, we have unfinished business for sure and as a collective want to get the job done this coming year.
“I like the squad that Aaron is putting together, it excites me and I can’t wait to get started with the boys shortly”
Steelers commence their season with home exhibition games against Nottingham Panthers (Sunday 28th August) and Coventry Blaze (Saturday 3rd September) at the Utilita Arena, Sheffield.
