Czech forward Martin Látal will be back with Sheffield for a second season, the Steelers confirmed on Wednesday morning.
The Czech put up 27 goals and 33 assists in 63 games during the 2021/22 Premier Sports Elite League season, and was among the top five in the league for plus-minus with a final total of +31.
"I’m extremely happy we are able to get 'Lats' back for another year. He’s a player with next-level speed that can change a game in a hurry. Martin impacts the game on both ends of the ice and plays in all our key situations," said Head Coach Aaron Fox.
"He brings a ton of character to our dressing room, and, I believe after now getting to know the league, he can build off last year’s numbers. It’s great to have him back."
