New head coach Aaron Fox has no intention of loaning Cole Shudra to any other side, saying “his future is here in Sheffield”
In a video interview with the Sheffield STAR, Fox confirmed that he has been impressed with the attitude and work ethic of Cole and thought that the experience he had last year in MK would only have helped his development.
After playing in all of the junior sides in Sheffield, Cole represented England at both Under 16 and 18 levels.
He joined the Steelers back in 2016 as part of the clubs apprenticeship programme. In 2018 he was loaned out to MK Lightning to obtain valuable ice time and experience. In 46 games as a forward and a defenseman Shudra scored 6 goals, 9 points and amassed 88 penalty minutes.
For season 2019-20 he is back with the Steelers.
