The Sheffield Steelers go into tonight's Premier Sports Elite League game on the cusp of hitting a significant EIHL milestone.
If they can beat the Coventry Blaze, they would become the first side to win 700 EIHL games in all competitions. Aaron Fox's team are also six goals shy of becoming only the second to total 4,000 goals in the EIHL era, with Belfast having been the first.
Other milestones to look out for tonight:
- Guildford's Ian Watters will play his 200th EIHL game tonight
- Cardiff's Mark Richardson needs one goal to hit 100 in all competitions
- Sheffield's Brendan Connolly has 97 goals, three short of netting 100 in the EIHL
- Steelers John Armstrong sits on 195 EIHL points so far, closing in on 200
- Sheffield's Tanner Eberle can hit 100 EIHL points if he notches three more
