Steeldogs sign new import

SHEFFIELD, U.K.- The Sheffield Steeldogs have signed Lubomir Korhon, the ex-Czech Republic international and former team-mate of ex-NHLers, Tomas Kaberle and Michal Rozsival.
Korhon has proven himself in a variety of leagues and countries, such as the Swedish Elitserien, the SM-liiga in Finland and most prolifically in the Czech Republic.
During one season for Czech side, HC Havirov Panthers, the 34 year old was the MVP for his side, securing a total of 45 points, with 25 goals and 20 assists, in 51 games.
Korhon is enthusiastic at the prospect of playing his very first season in the UK. He said, I am excited about the new challenge with the Sheffield Steeldogs and I am looking forward to helping the Dogs get back on track and to winning ways.”

Steeldogs coach, Andre Payette, said, “ I am really excited about getting someone of Lubo’s experience on board,” “You don’t play most of your career in the top leagues in Europe without having anything to offer,” “I am sure Lubo will bring a lot to the Dogs as he is quick, skilful and can put the puck in the back of the net.”
Steeldogs owner, Shane Smith, said, “ Lubo has great experience and skill and has been at the top for a long time and this is what we need right now,”
“I have spoken long and hard with Andre about what is expected this year and, although we will push the Sheffield lads, we still have to do what is best for the team and the fans.”
