Will Coventry steal another Sheffield Steeler?

Coventry Blaze may be about to raid Sheffield Steelers again for another Play-Off winning forward.

Blaze coach Marc Lefebvre has already plundered Steelers captain Steve Goertzen in a move that few people had expected.

Now he is showing interest in last year’s leading goalscorer Stefan Meyer.

When Lefebvre was at Steelers as assistant coach he was a close confidant of Meyer.

And when Lefebvre left for the Midlands, he took over a team lacking in leadership. He has partly addressed that with Goertzen’s signature and sees Meyer as of similar value in terms of leadership.

Meyer was ecstatic after helping Sheffield to become Play-Off champions on April 6.

But in the immediate aftermath he was wary of committing to a second season at the House of Steel, saying he would take his time to come to a decision.

Steelers boss Gerad Adams has told 28-year-old Meyer that he wants him back.

But wing/centre Meyer has iced for nine different sides since 2007 - including NHL giants Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers - so is certainly not afraid of making career changes.

From Steelers’ point of view, finding a goalscorer or two is a vital close season undertaking especially with top points-taker Jeff Legue jumping ship for Sheffield Steeldogs.

Only Legue made the top 20 list of Elite scorers for Steelers.
