Mississauga, ON – The Mississauga Steelheads return to the Paramount Fine Foods Centre this weekend, taking on the Hamilton Bulldogs and the Windsor Spitfires. The club looks to turn the page in what was a tough September.

The Steelheads next victory will be the 100th of Head Coach and General Manager James Richmond’s career.
