Sheffield Steelers are preparing for the worst case scenario - losing their import goalie for this weekend’s Play Off quarter finals.

Coach Paul Thompson said: “He is having extensive treatment, but we won’t push it if he’s not ready, there’s no point.

“‘Moose’ is the top goaltender in the Elite League.

Steelers entertain Guildford Flames in the first leg of the quarter final on Saturday.
