Mark Garside, 30 years old from Scotland, rejoins the Giants for a tenth season. He first joined the Giants back in 2010 after four years spent with the Edinburgh Capitals.

During his time in Belfast, Garside has helped the organisation win three league championships, in the 2011/12, 2013/14 and 2018/19 seasons, as well as two Challenge Cup titles and sits fourth in the Giants overall appearances with 473 games played.

Garside has been a regular in the Team GB national side for seven straight seasons and clinched Gold in the 2017 World Championship hosted in Belfast, their first in 24 years.

Garside is a fantastic two-way player and can skate at either on defence or at centre where he is exceptional in the face-off circle. His quality and versatility has seen Mark represent Great Britain at the Under 18, Under 20 and Senior level.
