The Captain and Heartbeat of the Belfast Giants, Adam Keefe is probably one of the most recognisable names, numbers and playing styles in the Elite Ice Hockey League.
The 31 year old Right winger from Brampton, Ontario in Canada is entering his 6th season as a Giant and his 5th with the letter C on his jersey. With a storied career in the AHL, including time in the Detroit Red Wings system with Grand Rapids, Keefe was tempted over the Irish Sea in 2011 by Doug Christiansen and immediately given the A on his chest, his new coach recognising Adam’s ability to lead from the front and his influence in the locker room. That very season he was to win the first of his of two EIHL League Championships to date, the second coming in 2014 when he raised the trophy above his head as captain.
Keefe’s hardnosed, gritty, physical style of play has gained much respect both around the league and in Belfast where he has become the first real franchise player. His older brother, Sheldon, is now head coach of Toronto Maple Leafs affiliate, the Marlies and this season Adam himself has taken another step toward his future within the game by becoming an assistant coach to Derrick Walser.
A tireless workhorse for the Belfast Giants both on the ice and in the community, Keefe’s attributes as a captain extend far beyond the walls of the SSE Arena, and make him one of the most valuable assets in the Elite Ice Hockey League.
