Biography

Jesse Forsberg joined the Giants from the University of Saskatchewan where he was a teammate of former players Josh Roach and Kendall McFaull.

Forsberg, from Waldheim, Saskatchewan in Canada, will pull on the #29 jersey and makes his debut in teal at August’s home exhibition games before the Champions Hockey League begins.

Forsberg arrives in Belfast after a stellar season on the Saskatchewan Huskies with the defenceman named to the USports All-Canadian second team as well as the USports (West) First All-Star team – for a second time in his five seasons.

In 2016/17, Forsberg was awarded the prestigious Mervyn Dutton trophy for the USports (West) Most Outstanding Defenceman.

The 25 year old captained the University of Saskatchewan in his final season, finishing with six goals and 15 assists, good for 21 points in 24 games – the second best record among Canada West defencemen.
