Steel clinch playoff birth, set franchise wins record

  

FRANCHISE RECORD IN WINS
The Chicago Steel (39–7–1–0, 79 points) set a franchise record this past weekend with an 8–1 victory over the Madison Capitols at Fox Valley Ice Arena. With 15 regular season games left to play in the season, the Steel should shatter the record that was set by the 2016-2017 team.

TEDDY BEAR TOSS
On Saturday, the same night Chicago broke the franchise record, Steel fans littered the ice after forward Dawson Pasternak beat Madison goaltender Zach Hearn only 40 seconds into the game. Teddy Bears flew from the stands to a total of nearly 400 stuffed animals. These stuffed animals were collected and donated to local charities including Big Hearts of Fox Valley, WINGA Program, Inc. and Mooseheart Child City & School.

 

GO JUMP IN A LAKE
The team supported the Special Olympics Chicago by attending the Polar Plunge. The charity event, in which General Manager Ryan Hardy and Broadcaster Mark Citron also attended, raised over $10,000 overall from the Chicago Steel organization. Citron can be viewed in the penguin outfit below.
