After 20 games in the world’s greatest league, Stefan Meyer is not coming to Sheffield Steelers to sit on his laurels.

The one time Florida Panthers and Calgary Flames left winger, who has just had a two-year stint on mainland Europe, wants a trophy or two to show for his debut year in the Elite League.

The 28-year-old Canadian ex NHLer says: “I’m coming to Sheffield to win, why else would I drag my family and my dog half away around the world?

“I would consider it a waste of my time to come all this way just for a luxury year playing. For me it’s all about trying to bring the championship home.

“The coaches explained it to me. I know the history and what is expected. Hard work wins through every time.

“I’m bringing my dog. I’m on the road a lot, it keeps the wife company.”

Meyer is a defensive forward, not known for his points output. Coach Doug Christiansen is now looking for a big scoring forward to join Meyer before the season faces off.
