With the start of the new season less than 7 weeks away head coach Aaron Fox says his team building work is nearing competition, but that there is a few important pieces before his summer recruitment work ends.
“We have made progress” he said “we are progressing day by day, getting a little closer to our end goal for sure
“Whilst it is important not to rush we are keeping an eye on the clock as I would like the team together before our first game against Nottingham on 27th and 28th August.
“I think the next 7-10 days will be vital and it would be nice to be done by then so we can focus more on the team when they get here, making sure all is ready and prepared for them and that we are good to go on the ice in training camp.
“Those who have signed are in touch with Mike for their summer work outs, and of course Andy for their equipment needs. Shaun is looking after the work permit and visa situation so it is all hands on deck right now, as it is with all the teams in the league”
Steelers Home Opener is on Sunday 28th August – at the Arena Vs. Nottingham Panthers
