An Evening with Guillaume Desbiens
17th March 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
For One Night. It’s time to say “Thank You” to Guillaume Desbiens
Guillaume Desbiens may have only played 87 games for the Sheffield Steelers, may have only scored 18 goals and 49 points but he will remain in the hearts and minds of all Steeler fans after his heroics in helping the club win the 2017 Play Off Championship.
Desbiens overtime game winning and series winning goal against the Nottingham Panthers on Sunday 2nd April, 2017 was one of the most dramatic moments in our clubs history. The Steelers had come back from a 3 goal deficit the night before to take the series into overtime after a 4-1 victory in the 2nd leg.
With penalty shots looming, Desbien’s collected the puck deep inside his own defensive zone and raced the length of the ice to score one of the most historic goals ever scored at the Arena.
A week later “Desi” would score the game winner in the Play Off semi final against the Belfast Giants and then contribute with a momentous performance in the 5 period overtime winning play off final against the Cardiff Devils.
Now Desi is coming home, for one night only, so we can say thank you on Saturday 17th March when the Steelers take on the Nottingham Panthers in an Elite League clash.
The Steelers are offering 120 lucky fans the opportunity to get close and personal with the man who changed Steelers history before the game in the Arena VIP club.
For just £30 (this does not include a match night ticket) you will arrive early to meet the Desi and enjoy a Pie and Pea Buffett in the VIP Arena Lounge. There will be a photo opportunity with our club photographer present to have your picture taken with “Desi” and the Play Off Trophy.
There will then be a special Q&A with Desi where you can ask him any questions about his career, his time and Sheffield and life now after hockey. There will be special Steelers VIP giveaways in the period breaks exclusive to all attending the event when you will be able to return to the VIP area for more Guillaume Desbien time.
Available only with the Desbiens ticket, a limited edition Desbiens farewell T-shirt at £15.
All times subject to change.
