Steelers Sign Drew Fata

The Sheffield Steelers have confirmed the signing of 29 year old D man Drew Fata

Fata played against the Steelers last season in the Continental Cup for Italian side "Asiago" and impressed head coach Ryan Finnerty

"I think he was the best D man in the competition" said Finnerty "That’s why we moved so quickly when he became available. He ticks all the boxes for us, big, strong, very tough, very experienced and just a very good all around D man. I think he compliments the other players we have on the blue line and I really think he is a perfect fit for us

"We had lots of options in the end but Fata stood out from the rest, we have again signed real quality. I could have gone for a knuckle dragging D man who perhaps fought a little more but what's the point. This whole team has team toughness, there isn't one player that will play scared. This Steelers team has size, strength and character and Fata fits the bill on all of those points as well"

2-year deal, not a bad backup plan now the Huxley isn't coming, Fata is a pretty solid d-man too, it'll be fun to see him get the PIMs back up now that he's in a tougher league.
