It is only 11 games into the Elite League season and this evening will be the third time the Dundee Stars and Sheffield Steelers have faced each other.
Star travel to Yorkshire on a high, after claiming a shootout win against the Manchester Storm.
Their injury concerns continue to grow, however.
Jimmy Jensen has been added to the Tayside team’s injury list, bringing the total to five players out of their 21-man squad.
Sheffield have claimed two victories against Dundee this season so far, hammering their opposition 8-2 on home ice and easily taking the points once more in Dundee by five goals to two.
Omar Pacha believes his side’s injury problems create an “opportunity for guys to step up.”
The Stars head coach said: “It is always a tough match-up against Sheffield, everyone knows we are facing many injuries but we still have to go in to Sheffield with the right mindset.
“It will be a big challenge but this will be a great opportunity for guys to step up.”
The Stars have already shown that they have a range of players who can find the net from all over the ice and their latest signing brought in by coach Pacha “to bolster their offensive output” bagged his first goal at the weekend.
Dundee’s newest recruit, Justin Fox, said: “The boys are feeling confident with points in four of our last five games.
“Although we are disappointed we let a few points get away from us I feel as though we are heading in the right direction and the feeling in the room is positive.”
He added: “My time in Dundee has been great so far, the guys have been amazing in welcoming me and making me feel as comfortable as possible. I’m still adjusting to the new city but have enjoyed the city and all it has to offer so far.”
Dundee face local rivals Fife Flyers in Kirkcaldy on Saturday night before returning home the next day to play the Belfast Giants again for the last time this season at the DIA.
Tonight’s game at Ice Sheffield faces-off at 7.30pm.
