Ramsay wants Euro cup glory

Have your say

MIKE Ramsay is back and ready to spearhead Sheffield Steelers’ invasion of Europe.

The Canadian has missed eight games after breaking a bone in his hand but will be in the line-up in Denmark today to face Serie A Italian champions Asiago, in the Continental Cup.

Speaking from Denmark, the Canadian right wing, who scored six goals and 13 assists in 14 games before injury, said: “I’m ready to go, the hand feels good. It’s got stronger every day. I’ll have the wrist well protected but I’m not expecting trouble.

“The ice is huge so hopefully Jeff Legue and I can make an impact. All the guys are excited about this competition.

“We aren’t here to make the numbers up; we are here to try and win this thing.”

Coach Ryan Finnerty said: “Today may be our toughest game of the three. If we play our best we’ve as good a chance as anyone. History suggests that British clubs fall into penalty trouble. We have to be smart and disciplined. I am sure that five on five we can skate with these teams. We have scorers, good D men and a hot goalie. I am sure we can get a result today and cause an upset.”
