Coach Doug Christiansen leaves Belfast shortly to spend his summer in the US from where he will be continuing to work on recruiting the team for Season 12.
“The off-season is in full swing and we are starting to lock up our players for next season. I have had individual meetings with each of our players from last season and I have extended some contract offers. I have also been contacted by a number of excellent players throughout the league and elsewhere. The Belfast Giants “brand” is extremely strong at the moment and that is very exciting. I would not be surprised if we have signing news soon!”
“I am very patient in my recruiting. I will spend the entire summer looking and will find many quality players in July and August. Last season our August signings were Brett Hemingway, Josh Prudden, Mike Hoffman, Mike Bayrack and Richard Seeley. Do not be surprised if some of our best additions will be found later in the summer.”
