Steelers Sign Simon Ferguson
The Sheffield Steelers have confirmed the signing of Simon Ferguson.
Ferguson has played 335 American Hockey League games and will arrive in Sheffield once his working visa has been approved.
Head coach Ryan Finnerty confirmed the signing saying "We have only been carrying 10 imports this season and have always had the option to bring an 11th in.
"Also with the NHL situation we didn't want to get caught should the NHL return to work and Tom Sestito leave us. We would then have been chasing a new player to replace him and have competition for signings from every team in Europe.
"Simon Ferguson is the perfect signing for us. He is hungry to come into a situation and play out the year. He is a hard working, hard nosed player who will bring a great work ethic and style of play to our team. I see him in the mould of a Tylor Michel. He is another that will intensify and energise to the side
Real solid LHW, NHL names on the card include McQuaid, Engelland, Reaves, Jackamn, Rosehill, Clarkson, Cote.
He's also gone with DiDiomete before so we'll see if they renew hostilities!

Good to have another tougher player in the league... Steelers look much tougher now with Sestito, Ferguson, Fata in their roster
