Rampant Sheffield Steelers wing Levi Nelson has been named the Elite League Player of the Week.

The feisty forward played a major role in the Steelers two victories over Nottingham, which saw them cut Cardiff Devils’ lead at the top of the table to 11 points.

Nelson chalked up two assists at the NIC on Saturday night and then added two goals, including the game winner, and picked up one further assist on Sunday.

The 28-year-old said: “It was a great weekend all around for the guys. It’s never easy going into Nottingham and we found a way to win, then on Sunday it was a dominant performance.

This weekend Steelers are in Belfast and Cardiff and Nelson is expecting a testing time: “It is going to be two tough games for us, but we’ve had a good week of practice and we’re ready to go.

“We’re focussing on the Belfast game and then, when Sunday comes around we will be itching to get a win in Cardiff.”

*Great Britain Under-20s have announced two changes to their roster for the World Championship (Division 1B) in Budapest, which gets under way on Sunday.

Swindon Wildcats forward Jordan Kelsall and Bracknell Bees forward Josh Smith replace Matthew Headland and Kyle Smith in the squad.

GB will face hosts Hungary, as well as Slovenia, Poland, Italy and Ukraine.
