Steelers swoop for double signing!
Steelers head coach Aaron Fox has confirmed the signings of goalie John Muse and defensemen Jeremy Beaudry from Danish side Rødovre Mighty Bulls for the #2021EliteSeries.
Both players will shortly arrive in the UK ahead of the series that commences on Saturday 3rd April.
Goalie John Muse arrives in Sheffield with an impressive resume having played 184 American Hockey League games in addition to spells in Russia and Denmark.
Beaudry hails from Montmagny, Quebec, and started the year off with Amiens (France) before his move to Rødovre.
Fox commented “Jeremy is a two way defencemen, who plays on both sides of the puck and plays in all situations. He spent the season between France and Denmark and averaged a point per game as a defenceman.”
“Jeremy is a key power play contributor and not afraid to mix it up. I’m pleased that he is excited to come in and finish off the year with an opportunity to win something.”
“John is a veteran goalie with a very strong North American career playing 184 American league games with a save .914 sv% and a career 93-63-11 record. In addition, John also played 100 ECHL games with a save percentage of .908 and a career 53-33-14 record.”
“He plays a very technical game and reads the play extremely well. I think this a great opportunity to get him into Sheffield and help us achieve our goals.”
“The goaltending position was always going to be a extremely tough decision. I felt we needed to go with someone who had played some competitive hockey this year and was already match fit. When John became available I definitely thought he would be a good fit and give us a chance to win every night.
“What made this hard was that Duba is arguably one of highest character and good people I have been associated with in Hockey. I did have a great conversation with Thomas letting him know and he was extremely understanding of our situation. Class act that guy!!!”
