Brock Sheahan became the winningest head coach in Chicago Steel history with a 6-5 victory against the Dubuque Fighting Saints on Saturday in Dubuque.
With Chicago’s victory, Sheahan won his 101st career USHL game as Steel head coach to surpass Scott McConnell for the record. McConnell served as the Steel’s head coach from 2010-15, including time as general manager from 2013-15.
Sheahan, a Notre Dame alumnus, joined the Steel in 2018 as an associated head coach after two years in the same role at NCAA Holy Cross. He spent two seasons in that role before being elevated to head coach following Greg Moore’s departure to become head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ AHL affiliate, Toronto Marlies.
The Steel won the Clark Cup as USHL champions in 2021, and the Anderson Cup twice as regular-season champions (2020, 2021) with Brock Sheahan as head coach. He also has helped develop numerous players into NHL prospects, including four first-round draft picks.
Chicago defeated the Youngstown Phantoms 5-2 on Thursday to become the first Eastern Conference team to clinch a Clark Cup Playoffs berth. The Steel (33-12-7-1) are six points behind the Tri-City Storm (39-10-2-0) for the USHL lead.
