‘Steel: An Extraordinary Season On Ice’, showcasing Sheffield’s very own sports stars’ journey, is now available to the public.

A team at ITV Calendar News have been working on this special film to feature the Steelers’ amazing, yet bumpy ride this season.

The film covered the detailed depictions of the club’s achievements, and their highs and lows.

Chris Dawkes, sports correspondent and presenter at ITV Yorkshire, said: “It’s a story of triumph over adversity, and the way a group of young men had to deal with unimaginable tragedy.

“The idea of the documentary began with a conversation off camera between me and one of the players, Daniel Ciampini.”

Campiani recounted how ‘the incident’, which caused Nottingham Panthers player, Adam Johnson, to lose his life in October, left him feeling scared to go back on the rink.

Prior to that, they had previously lost a teammate, Alex Graham.

Campiani emphasised how this had affected not just him, but also the team.

However, despite all of the tragedies they had faced in the past year, the Steelers went ahead with the competitions.

They achieved a ‘Grand Slam’ – all three major trophies in the British Ice Hockey league – the Elite League Title, Elite Play-Offs, and the Challenge Cup.

Dawkes’ main goal was to produce a longer story rather than his original three-minute long news report to capture all of the raw emotions of the players and coach.

Aside from this, behind the scenes footage of the ice hockey team was revealed and it showed the team’s uplifting spirits to get each other through their toughest and darkest times.

He said: “It makes me very proud to produce something like this and I hope it captures what an extraordinary season it was for the club, the players and the fans.

“I filmed all the interviews in one afternoon and edited a rough version together in a day.”

Just after its release yesterday, the documentary has received multiple praise from fans and general viewers.

The film can be watched exclusively on ITV’s streaming service ITV X.
