Steel provided an assist and won eight of 15 faceoffs in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.
Steel's linemate Maxime Comtois has three goals this year, and it's been Steel with assists on two of them. The 22-year-old Steel also got the first shift in overtime, but he lost the draw to winger Max Pacioretty, who scored seven seconds later. The rebuilding Ducks will have unlucky games like this one, but Steel is making an impact with a helper in each of the first two contests. As long as his line is successful, more playing time should open up.
Steel managed an assist in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.
Steel set up Maxime Comtois to get the Ducks on the board at 4:22 of the first period. While he'll likely become a top-six option eventually, Steel will begin 2020-21 in a third-line role. He skated with Comtois and Troy Terry at even strength Thursday. This will be a pivotal year for Steel, the 30th overall pick in 2016, to prove he can make a difference at the NHL level.
Steel concluded the season having posted six goals and 16 assists in 65 games.
The sophomore's 22 points were marred by an unsightly minus-13 rating, but such is life when playing for one of the league's worst teams. Steel managed to produce over a third of his points (eight) on the power play, where he averaged 1:44 while often centering the team's top unit.
Steel scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche.
Steel converted on a Ryan Getzlaf set-up at 12:48 of the second period, right at the end of a Ducks power play.

Steel picked up a power-play assist in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Sharks.
Steel has 16 points this season, and seven have come on the power play. The 21-year-old has added 56 shots on goal and a minus-9 rating through 44 games. A first-round pick from 2016, Steel should eventually be a fixture in the top-six, but his production this year is more of a non-physical middle-six forward, which isn't enough for most fantasy owners.
Steel scored in overtime to give the Ducks a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes on Friday.
The 21-year-old snapped his fourth goal of the season over James Reimer's shoulder after a stretch pass from Jakob Silfverberg put him in the clear 96 seconds into the extra period.

Steel registered a power-play assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Friday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.

After a nine-game point drought, during which he also served one game as a healthy scratch, Steel has put his name on the scoresheet in each of the last two outings. He's now at 12 points in 33 contests this season, exceeding the 11 points he had through 22 appearances last year. The 21-year-old is likely still a year or two away from making good on his first-round pick status.

Steel won't suit up in Tuesday's matchup against the Wild, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

It was the first goal in 18 games this season for the 21-year-old, who banged home a rebound on the doorstep to get the Ducks on the board in the third period. Anaheim's first-round pick in 2016, Steel flashed glimpses of his offensive potential as a rookie in 2018-19, scoring six times in 22 games. However, things have yet to click for him as a sophomore, with just the one goal and eight assists through 17 games.
Steel produced an assist in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Sharks.
Steel had the secondary helper on a Max Jones goal in the third period as the Ducks made a late attempt at a comeback.

Steel scored a goal and picked up an assist with three shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.
The 21-year-old finally found the net for the first time this season, deflecting an Erik Gudbranson point shot in the second period. It was the first goal in 12 games this season for Steel, who also assisted on Nick Ritchie's third-period goal. The 2016 first-rounder has five points this season and 16 in his first 34 games. Steel has high offensive upside but is clearly still in the development stage of his NHL career. If things do start to click, don't be afraid to pounce on the talented youngster.
Steel picked up an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Hurricanes.
After injuries stalled the center in training camp and the early parts of the season, Steel is beginning to heat up with assists in his last two games.

Steel notched a power-play assist and won 8 of 9 faceoffs in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Sabres.
Steel has been limited to just three games after battling an upper-body injury. The assist is his first point of the season. The 21-year-old is centering the third line, but the Ducks will be expecting him to take a step forward in his development this year.
