27.07.2012 - Defenceman Steve Birnstill joins the Clan
Braehead Clan are delighted to confirm that defenceman Steve Birnstill will be joining the Clan for the 2012/2013 season. There has been some speculation and rumours that Birnstill was set to join the Clan this season, and following discussions between Clan Player/Coach Jordan Krestanovich and US born Birnstill, the deal has finally been done, and Birnstill will join the Glasgow based team at the end of August for pre-season.

The New York native is no stranger to the EIHL, having played for the Sheffield Steelers in 2011/2012, amassing 47pts (9 goals & 38 assists). Prior to playing for the Steelers, 6’2 Birnstill played 3 seasons in Denmark, playing for Esbjerg and Frederikshavn. 26 year old Birnstill has also played in the CHL and AHL, and there is no doubt that his debut season for the Steelers made him one of the top D-men in the EIHL.

Clan Player/Coach Jordan Krestanovich had the following to say on signing Birnstill

“Steve is yet another player that I have been after since I took over as Clan Player/Coach.”

“He is a very talented defensemen that skates extremely well and he also moves the puck very well. He is a big strong d-man, he is solid at the back but he is also an offensive d-man, so he ticks all the boxes.”

“I knew I needed a D-man that could be strong on defence, but that could also feed the puck to the guys up front. He moves well on the ice and is consistent. I think he will be a good asset to our power play thanks to the nature of his play.”

“I remember playing against Steve last year and thinking that he was the type of player that I would want on my team. So I am extremely happy that he will be on our team this year and playing for the Clan.”

“Steve has a good work ethic and is a real team player and I am looking forward to working with him this season”.

Birnstill added “I’m very excited about coming to play for Braehead this season”

“I’ve heard great things about the city of Glasgow and the people there, and from my experience of playing in Braehead last season, the fans were always great, and it’s a really nice venue to play in.”

“I think Jordan (Krestanovich) has put together a great team and he convinced me that this team is going to be battling for a championship. I think ultimately that’s what every player wants….the chance to win some silverware.”

“I am looking forward to arriving in Glasgow and getting the pre-season training underway. We have a friendly against Tilburg Trappers on 31st August, before we face Belfast Giants the following week in the Challenge Cup, so we will take some time to train as a team both on and off the ice, prior to the 2012/2013 season getting underway.

"I am happy to have signed for the Clan and I look forward to the season ahead.”

27.05.2013 - Steve Birnstill neuer Verteidiger beim HCG
Nach der Verpflichtung von Mark Demetz, wird die Verteidigung in der anstehenden Saison vom US- Amerikanischen Legionär Steve Birnstill verstärkt. In der Auswahl dieses Import zählte dabei, zusätzlich zum sportlichen Profil der sich sehen lassen kann, auch sehr stark der Wille der vom ausgesuchten Spieler vermittelt wurde heuer eine starke Saison hinlegen zu wollen.

Der 27- jährige Abwehrhüne (188 cm – 86 kg) aus New York, bringt wertvolle Erfahrung aus der AHL, EIHL und aus Dänemark mit. Zuletzt spielte er in Großbritannien bei den Braehead Clan, wo er in zwei Saisonen in 118 Spielen, 91 Punkte (18 Tore – 73 Vorlagen) sammeln konnte. Grödens Präsident Hugo Perathoner freut sich über diese Verpflichtung: „Birnstill hat bei den Vertragsverhandlungen und den zahlreichen geführten Gesprächen einen sehr guten Eindruck hinterlassen, zudem ist er derzeit noch Single und kann sich daher voll und ganz dem Eishockeygeschehen widmen. Außerdem will der HC Gherdëina heuer stark auf jene Spieler setzen, die mit Leib und Seele und hochmotiviert, zusammen mit dem Vorstand, diese INL-herausforderung angehen wollen.“
