Sheffield Steelers have signed Great Britain international Ben O'Connor on a short-term deal.

The 25-year-old defenceman was a free agent after leaving Kazakhstan side Arlan, having previously had spells in the Elite League with Basingstoke, Edinburgh and Coventry.

He is likely to make his debut for the Steelers against Cardiff on Saturday.

He said: "Who knows how many games this deal will last for, but let's just enjoy it and win some games."
