Sheffield Steelers hope to have all 14 import guns firing tonight at Cardiff Devils.

The club has finally ended the six-game suspension period handed to them following Andre Deveaux's discipline sanction and his exit from the club.

That means all 14 overseas players can take the ice, including back-from-injury Zack Fitzgerald, who will be wearing a full face mask to protect his damaged teeth.

Paul Thompson's men can close the two point gap on Cardiff if they can win in regulation time, never an easy task in south Wales.

Devils are the Elite League's form team, with five straight wins under their belt.

Steelers are coming off a 7-2 win at Dundee Stars, on Wednesday.

After tonight, they host Fife Flyers on Sunday.
