Sheffield Steelers have appointed one of their former favourites, Scott Neil, as their general manager.
Neil played for the Steelers from 1992 to 1997 and was a member of the 1996 Grand Slam side. He was recently the general manager of the British National League side Edinburgh Capitals.
Neil was "delighted to be re-joining the Steelers and returning to Sheffield", and added his intent to "raise the profile of the Steelers with the business community of Sheffield".
The club's owner, Norton Lea, said: "Scott will be a fine addition leading the current staff, coordinating the coach's office and harnessing the roles of all other groups connected with the Steelers."
In the Elite League on Sunday, a hat-trick in four minutes in the third period by Steve Ellis gave Sheffield a victory over bottom-placed London, after the score had stood at 3-3 at the end of the second.
A last-minute equaliser by Belfast's Paul Sample forced the game with Basingstoke into overtime after the visitors had taken a two-goal lead. Todd Kelman grabbed the winner for the home side in the 64th minute.
Two goals in the last two minutes ensured a win for Cardiff after Nottingham had led for most of the game. Dennis Maxwell and Ivan Matulik scored for Cardiff to cancel out John Craighead's earlier goal for Nottingham.Reuse content
