FARGO, North Dakota – The Chicago Steel are now two-time Clark Cup champions after defeating the Fargo Force 3-1 Saturday night.
Steel forward Adam Fantilli was awarded the Playoffs MVP, finishing the postseason with nine points including a two-goal performance in the title game.
The win caps an impressive two year run by the Steel. They held the best record in the league in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic cut the season short. The club picked up right where they left off, leading the league in scoring for a second straight season and tallying a franchise record 265 goals.
The Steel scored in every game during the regular season, and only failed to tally a goal once during their 7-1 playoff run.
They have now captured two USHL titles in the last four Clark Cup Playoffs with three appearances in the last four finals.
A number of Steel players are expected to hear their name called in the upcoming NHL draft.
