Sheffield Steelers coach Paul thompson said he could not be happier with the commitment of his team despite their loss in the Play Off Final to Cardiff Devils.
He said it had been a one goal game taking away the empty netter at the death.
Thompson said the job continued to close the gap on the all conquering Welsh, who have won the League and Conference.
He said there would be a lot of rebuilding for the club, but "that was for another day."
