Having moved to Belfast mid way through last season from ESV Kaufbeuren in Germany, Kevin Saurette made an instant impact in the Elite League tallying 18 goals and 21 assists for a total of 39 points in 34 games. The 6 foot 200lbs power forward brings an ideal mix of size and skill to the Giants lineup and will be expecting to carry on the form that made him one of the most sought after players in the Elite League this off-season.
Saurette is a player that can log a lot of ice time and last season featured significantly on the powerplay, netting 6 goals to finish the season tied for second on the team in powerplay goals.
“Kevin has produced offensively everywhere he has played and last season he demonstrated his ability to score in the Elite League. Having Saurette back with the Giants will contribute greatly to our offensive output.”
