Mark Garside, 24, posted six goals and 18 assists, good for 24 points last season and was also awarded the ‘Unsung Hero’ Award by the Giants Fans. The 2013/14 season will be Garside’s fourth as a Belfast Giant following four previous years spent with the Edinburgh Capitals.
Garside is a fantastic two-way player who can skate at either wing or centre where he is exceptional in the face-off circle. His quality and versatility have seen Mark represent Great Britain at the Under 18, Under 20 and Senior level and played a huge part in Team GB’s success in the Olympic Qualification rounds last season.
“Mark is a great two way player. He can play center or wing. He works hard everyday and is still improving. He has increased his scoring the last three seasons and will continue to improve in Belfast. He is exceptional on face-offs. ”
