This morning the Sheffield Steelers announced their latest acquisition to their 2018-19 roster as the import slots start to fill. Joining the completely revamped Steelers team for the season ahead, is left winger Justin Buzzeo.
The 28 year old Canadian arrives in Sheffield after splitting his maiden year in Europe with Graz 99ers of the EBEL and latterly, DEL2 side Ravensburg Towerstars. He is another young and hungry player that should prove to be a good signing by Paul Thompson if he can reproduce the form which he has had so far in both his junior and senior hockey career.
Looking at his statistics, Buzzeo has a good record of goals and assists throughout. He’s averaging a point at least every two games which is not to be sniffed at. With a point production like that, Steelers seem to have stumbled on a gem if he replicates it. Buzzeo has also done his homework on the club, like most players do, and Eric Neiley (who impressed so much in his short spell last season) gave the new signing the green light that he should consider Sheffield as his next stop on his hockey career.
A pacy winger, Buzzeo should excite the Steelers fans with his high energy work rate and we look forward to seeing him in action. Welcome to Sheffield Justin.
