Losing to the Guildford Flames, that season proved to be a tremendous learning experience as the club is now in a rebuilding phase.

The Steeldogs play out of the IceSheffield in Sheffield, England and have a fierce rivalry brewing with the Manchester Phoenix who were founding members of England’s Elite Ice Hockey League.

The Sheffield Steeldogs have released their 2013-2014 schedule which you can find here. Stay tuned to March Hockey as we will do our best to cover the action from here in Canada.
