Steelers’ boss Paul Thompson said: “I’m delighted to welcome Davey to Sheffield – the move happened very quickly, sometimes it happens that way.
“I was looking for a right-handed shot ‘D’ man and Davey fits the bill. He has size and plays a physical game as well as making a good first pass.
“I’ve coached him before both with Coventry and GB and I want to get him back to the top of his game – we are a club that can do that.
“With Jason (Hewitt) leaving us I needed to bring in a quality top end British player.
“We need to do that if we want to play fast, exciting four-line hockey. By adding Davey to the blueline it leaves me scope to add another import up front to balance the lines out.”
