New 2 Year Contract for Ferrara

Luke Ferrara is the latest Steelers to extend his spell with the club after head coach Paul Thompson confirmed a new 2-year contract for the 22 year old winger

“We have seen that Luke has really come on over the year” said Thompson “he is getting a lot more ice time, a lot more responsibility and he can score goals. Every time he is out there he gets into positions to score goals. His game is becoming more rounded as his fitness and strength improve

“He is a great kid, great attitude. Along with Robert Dowd the first on the ice, the last off it. First one to the gym and last one out of it

“We want to build our club and we have to look to build the younger guys through – he is at the top of that list. I can see why Gerad wanted him back last summer, he saw the potential there and I see it as well. I see him moving up through the ranks with extra responsibility. For British players to break through these days it isn’t easy, not with the amount of imports. Then to break through and get quality minutes, power-play minutes and make the top 6 is not an easy thing to do now but we feel he is a guy who can progress and go that wa

“He has had a terrific season for us this year and has a terrific attitude and we are going back to building that core. We have an ageing group of British players here and we are looking to back fill with some younger guys who will get the batten passed onto them because they have to understand the values of the club and Luke does. He is going to be a very good player for the club”
