Jason Hewitt (C)
The 2015/16 season is Jason Hewitt's 11th with the Steelers and his testimonial year. This year 'the British Bull Dog' is expected to take over as the club's all-time appearance leader moving ahead of the great Ron Shudra. An incredible achievement for Hewitt that no one would have expected when he was signed by Dennis Maxwell part-way through the 2005/06 Elite League season.
Before arriving in Sheffield, the famous number 17 played with his hometown Altrincham club before experiencing his first season in the EIHL with Manchester Phoenix in 2003/04. The following season Hewitt moved to join up with Maxwell for the first time in London. He remained with the Racers for two seasons until their demise early in in the 2005/06 campaign. A short stint in Basingstoke followed until Maxwell re-united the pair in Sheffield.
During his incredible career with the Steelers the 32 year-old has not only represented his country on 34 occasions, winning a bronze and silver medal but he has also helped Sheffield win three Elite League Championships, three Playoff titles and the British Knockout Cup. At international level he has also won a bronze and silver medal for GB at the World Championships.
