Sheffield Steelers defenceman Ben O'Connor has signed a three-year deal.

The Great Britain international joined the Elite League side on a short-term deal earlier this month.

The 25-year-old told BBC Radio Sheffield: "It's a dream come true for me to be a Sheffield Steeler.

"I only expected to be here for two games but I have never had so much fun playing hockey. The group have welcomed me with open arms and it is great to be a part of."

He added: "I don't think you can pick out any faults when you look at the team.

"Everyone around the organisation is excited and we just want more games."
