Power forward Neil Clark is expected back in the Steelers line up for Saturdays home opener against Dundee Stars
Clark (pictured above) missed Tuesday's exhibition game against local rivals Sheffield Steeldogs as a precaution but head coach Ryan Finnerty expects the 6'3" winger back in time for Saturdays game at the arena.
"At this time of the year you want to be careful and Neil had a knock which needed rest. He has seen the physio a couple of times and we have kept him off the ice. He will skate on Friday but I expect a green light and to see him in full flight against Dundee on Saturday" said Finnerty.
Steelers will have a late fitness test on Rod Sarich before Saturday's game. Sarich also missed Tuesdays game with the Steeldogs and is thought to be 50-50 ahead of the game with Dundee.
