Steelers have confirmed the signing of 24 year old centre Brady Ramsey on an initial one-year deal.
It will be Ramsey’s first spell overseas after completing 3 years professional hockey in the East Coast League with Ontario Reign, Tulsa Oilers and Indy Fuel.
“I was looking for some energy” said head coach Paul Thompson “and Brady will bring that in bundles
“We’ve done a lot of work on him as a player and his character. I believe he will be able to play up and down our line up at either centre or wing. He is comfortable in both positions.
“Brady plays a hard nosed game, he is a competitor and I think its fair to say that we think he will be a fan favourite.”
For his part Ramsey was excited to be heading to the Elite League “I have buddies that have played in England and in Sheffield, I’m told this is the club to play for if coming to the UK”
Levi Nelson and Geoff Walker both gave their strong recommendations for the signing of Ramsey
“It’s nice to hear that good people and respected players like them are confident to put their name to me succeeding in Sheffield: Ramsey continued .”Both Levi and Walk’s have told me exceptional things about being a Steeler and I’m excited to get over there and get going.
“When I spoke with Paul (Thompson) he explained what he was looking for. He was honest and up front as he has a certain role for me.
“I’m an energy guy and that’s what he wanted, also someone who is defensively responsible and can play the penalty kill when called upon”
