Shudra Agrees two-way contract with the Steelers and Leeds Knights
The Sheffield Steelers and Leeds Knights have come to an agreement that will see Cole Shudra play for both clubs during the 2021-22 season after he agreed a two way contract with both clubs.
Steelers will have first call on Shudra should the club run into injury issues during their EIHL campaign with the 22-year-old utility player icing for the Knights during the remainder of the season.
Head coach Aaron Fox said “with reduced roster sizes us finding a way to get Cole back on a two-way deal was very important.
“We let Cole explore and negotiate what options were best for him in regards to the NIHL team and once he did that Steve (Nell) and Dave (Whistle) were easy to work with on finalising the two-way side of it.
“Cole is a versatile guy who can jump into our line-up whenever we are short benched and I know he can do a great job. It was very important for him to have this as an option as well and I think we will see him play plenty in orange this upcoming season”.
Steelers commence the 2021-22 season with a home exhibition game against Nottingham Panthers on Sunday 19thSeptember at the Sheffield Arena. Their first game at their Sheffield home since February 29th.
