Steve played in the National Hockey League with the Capitals, Minnesota North Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Detroit Red Wings, and Columbus Blue Jackets. He also attended the Pittsburgh Penguins training camp in 1997, but was released prior to the start of the regular season. He is best known, however, for his long tenure with the top-level minor league Chicago Wolves. He joined the Wolves in 1994 when they were in the International Hockey League, and followed them into the American Hockey League. He retired in 2005, having played in all 11 of the team's seasons up to that point. He is still the Wolves all-time leading scorer. His 596 minor league goals is the eighth highest total in minor league history, and his 605 total goals (minor league and NHL) is good for 22nd all time.
His #11 was retired by the Wolves in a ceremony on April 15, 2006.
