Sheffield Steelers looking to bounce back after Cardiff defeat as they prepare for Challenge Cup

Written by Gina Kalsi

The Steelers lost 2:3 to a penalty shootout to the Cardiff Devils at Sheffield Arena on Sunday.

This comes after an injury to one of their top players, Marco Vallerand. If he cannot play on Wednesday, the Steelers would have to replace him and bring in another player, which is not ideal.

Steelers Head Coach Aaron Fox said: “I thought, arguably, that was one of the better sixties we played all year. We didn’t find a way to win it which is disappointing, but at the end of the day we can all look ourselves in the mirror and know we played a heck of a game tonight.”

The team are gearing up to versus the Devils again on Wednesday, as part of the Semi-Final.

The winners of this game will either play the Nottingham Panthers or the Belfast Giants in a bid to win the Premier Sports Challenge Cup.

The 2022 Premier Sports Challenge Cup Final will be played as a one-off event in March.
