Sounds like a combination of injury and being stuck too far down the depth chart, he's a good player but Steelers aren't a great place for a young Brit to develop; they've lost their fair share of good kids over the last few years because they simply don't get the chances that other Elite teams give.
Finnerty has a pretty bad record with giving younger guys ice time, and if he and the Steelers hadn't been badmouthing the Scimitars/Steeldogs for years then they'd have Bowns as a top goalie for years to come and Ozolins who's a great little import.
