Fretter extends Steelers stay

Colton Fretter has signed a new one-year contract with Sheffield Steelers.

The 34-year-old forward had an injury hit second season with the club, but still scored 12 goals in just 27 games.

Steelers’ boss Paul Thompson said: “Colton Fretter is a game-changer – he can do things that others can’t.

“He’s a special talent and I’m thrilled he’s back with us. We missed him last year, we missed his shot, a player that can do something from the outside.

“I enjoyed my time working with him and understand it was a frustrating year for him.

“I’m excited at the thought of him fully fit and playing at the top of his game. I see a hunger in eyes and a desire to be here in Sheffield.

“The simple truth is that we are a better team with Colton Fretter in our shirt – he makes us better.”

Fretter added: “I’m excited to be back. I love it here in Sheffield and want the people to know that I’m here for the hockey, fully focused and raring to go.”
