Steelers' Summer clean-house strategy has proved brisk business for Elite League Rivals Milton Keynes Lightning.

Andreas Valdix, the popular Swedish centreman who had two seasons in Sheffield, is the latest to join Doug McKay's side.

Valdix joins the on-loan Steeler Cole Shudra, Tim Wallace and Eric Neiley, all of whom shared a dressing room under Paul Thompson.

McKay said: "We faced competition for his signature so I’m extremely happy to have signed him.

"He knows what the Elite League is about so will need no time to get up to speed there.

"Andreas knows how to set up goals as well as score them and although this is a late acquisition for us, I’m happy that he’ll fit right in and be a valuable member of our team.”

The four former Steelers will face their own side twice over the weekend of September 8 and 9.
