Prior to his UK landing, the product of Terrace Bay, Ontario spent 3 seasons in the Italian Alps league predominantly with Asiago ahead of the 21-22 term when he transferred to Fassa. In 110 games, he tallied 73 goals and 99 assists across a stretch that included back to back Italian titles in 2019-2020 and 2020-2021.
The 32 year old, kicked off his pro career in 2016 with a handful of games at Elmira Jackals. He went on to make 197 ECHL starts with Jackals, South Carolina Stingrays and Idaho Steelheads posting 77 goals and 165 points along the way to go with a couple of points in 12 AHL starts where he dressed for Chicago Wolves, Binghampton Senators, Texas Stars and San Diego Gulls.

“Along with Patrick, we think we have made a significant upgrade to our line up in terms of finding goals.”
“As we said earlier, there is no doubt we have struggled to find the net so far this season. Steven can skate well and his numbers over the course of his career speak for themselves.”
“We look forward to his arrival and being able to drop him into the lineup once he is here.”
