Sheffield Steelers again go into the Christmas period on top of the league standings, and a same as last time I wrote (2 seasons ago) Cardiff Devils trail them.

Because of the pandemic it was not deemed sustainable for the EIHL to continue for a full season last year so a mini series of four teams was set up running for just a month.

This kept a certain amount of interest within the hockey community as it was imperative that this did not fade, and now we are in the throes of a new season.

Sheffield Steelers, who have by far been the most consistent team of the season, top the EIHL standings. This is despite the adversity of injuries to key players, one of which has become long term. They lost a forward through a drugs related incident but have still come out on top.

Their nearest rivals are the Cardiff Devils at the moment but Belfast Giants are hot on the heels of these two with games in hand. The next club is The Guildford Flames who always appear a strong force but one wonders if they have the staying power to mount a sustained title challenge.

At the moment things, covid-wise, appear alright but cracks are appearing and there are hints of disruption to the league after Christmas. Rest assured we will keep you informed.
