Sheffield Steelers’ announcement that Jeff Legue and Jason Hewitt are retiring at the end of the season leaves the club facing the difficult task of replacing two important cogs in their machine this summer.
Hewitt holds the club’s all-time appearance record (680) whilst Legue is the Steelers’ all-time Elite league goal and points record holder (266 goals and 608 points).
Both players played their part in helping the club win this season’s league title – the fourth time they had shared lifting the trophy.
