The Sheffield Steeldogs are a semi professional team playing out of the English Premier Ice Hockey League (more on that in another post). With 10 teams in the league, each plays a total of 54 games.
Founded in 2010 and head manned by Cornwall, Ontario’s own Andre Payette (drafted to the Philadelphia Flyers in 1994), the Steeldogs have seen a winning season making it all the way to the finals in 2011/2012 season. 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.
