23 year-old forward Craig Peacock returns to Belfast for a third season after a very successful two years in Giant colours. He amassed 53 points last year, scoring 26 goals and adding 27 assists. Following his first year with the Giants Peacock was selected for the GB National Team after a standout rookie season.
Prior to playing for the Giants he spent several seasons with the Peterborough Phanthoms in the English Premier League. In 2008/2009 they won the EPL Cup and the League Championship with Peacock playing a key role in the final game – tallying 2 goals and an assist to lift the Playoff Trophy.
GM Kelman on the English forward, “Peacock has some skills that you just can’t teach, like a quick shot and a great eye for getting to the net. He can put the puck in the net, he did it 26 times for us last year, and you can’t teach someone to score goals. He is a great asset for the Belfast Giants and I am delighted that he is returning for a third season.”
“Craig is one of the top young British players. He is a pure goal scorer. He will need to continue to develop his speed to maximize his potential but he has all the tools to be a very successful professional for years to come.”
