Sheffield Steelers make their first new import signing.

Although they have recently re-signed import Mark Matheson Sheffield Steelers (EIHL) have now added their first new import signing.


Sheffield Steelers today announced the signing of 26 year old centre Joss Pitt. 

He joins from ECHL side Kalamazoo Wings, where he scored 31 goals. He joined them the season before after coming from university.

“I’ve served my time in North America” said Pitt “now it’s time to spread my wings and come to Europe. After University I gave it my best to try and earn that American League deal but it wasn’t to be. Coming to Sheffield is a fantastic opportunity for me to join a great organisation.

“After speaking with the coach, Paul Thompson I thought Sheffield was the best fit for me on and off the ice. I like the role he has set out for me. I want to contribute offensively and feel I can do that.

“I can make plays, give and take a hit as well as block shots and kill penalties but I think I’m a guy who can score and certainly hope to do so in Sheffield”

Head Coach Paul Thompson said "he is a big body who can play both wing or centre, I’ve signed him to play in the middle and add us some offensive punch – we will certainly give him the opportunity to do that”
