Vallerand on IR as Valdix extends his stay

The Sheffield Steelers have this afternoon confirmed that Marco Vallerand will be added to the clubs IR (Injury Reserve) list and will miss Saturday’s game against Nottingham Panthers at the arena and the following night’s fixture in Guildford.

The EIHL confirmed earlier the following…

“Sheffield have added forward Brendan Connolly to their injured-reserve list, backdated to 21 November 2021. He will be ineligible to ice in EIHL competition for 21 days from this date.

Additionally, the Steelers have retrospectively added forward Marc-Olivier Vallerand to injured-reserve backdated to 8 November 2021. He is also ineligible to ice in EIHL competition for 21 days from this date. Andreas Valdix, who played for the Steelers in last weekend’s IIHF Continental Cup games, has been added to the roster as Vallerand’s IR cover and is therefore not considered an official change during this time”.

Head coach Aaron Fox said ” Marco still won’t be available this weekend so we have put him on the IR and he will be available to come off and play next weekend if fit.

“We have extended Andreas Valdix for his cover on the weekend. He came in and played solid last weekend and I think another week here gives us more time to evaluate our current situation and make some key decisions next week”.
