Steelers Add Brandon Whistle on 2-Way Deal

Steelers head coach Aaron Fox has this morning confirmed that Brandon Whistle will be re-joining the club on a two-way contract with the Leeds Knights.

Fox commented “We have agreed on a two way with Brandon Whistle.

“Brandon will practice with us when he’s available and we can use him for games when Leeds aren’t playing which currently looks like an option for 20+ potential games.

“We all realise that Brandon has really put the work in the last two years and shown a commitment to Hockey and being a professional.  I think he has a real opportunity to be a good player at the EIHL level and am excited to have him back and hopefully help him get to that level”.

Whistle previously played 54 games for the Steelers back in the 2018-19 season scoring 1 goal and 3 points.

Since then Brandon has moved to the Telford Tigers where in 37 games he scored 22 goals and 59 points in season 2019-20. Earlier this summer he moved to Leeds to play under his father, and former Steelers coach, Dave Whistle.

Steelers will have three young British players out on two-way contracts in addition to their EIHL 19-man squad.
