David Goodwin was a late addition to the 2019-20 Belfast Giants, but the Centreman from St. Louis, Missouri wasted no time in amassing 29 points (15 goals, 14 assists) in just 32 games played. He arrives for a second season in Belfast with his sights set on continuing that trend.
After a junior career in the USHL split between the Green Bay Gamblers, Sioux City Musketeers and Cedar Rapids Roughriders, Goodwin opted for college, joining the NCAA Big 10’s Penn State in 2013-14.
In his senior year, Goodwin was named as Captain and led his team to a Big 10 Championship, posting 38 points (11 goals, 27 assists) in 39 games played. He also received an NCAA Sportsmanship Award, and to this day ranks 12th in Penn State’s all-time scoring chart.
Brought in from Swedish side Mora IK by Adam Keefe and Steve Thornton to bolster the Giants’ offensive ranks midway through the 2019-20 season, Goodwin settled into life in Belfast quickly.
Prior to Sweden, he had spent two years with Finnish side SaiPa; continuing to show his ability as a playmaker and willingness to battle in front of the paint for greasy goals.
More recently, during the cancelled 2020-21 EIHL season, Goodwin found himself in Poland on a Silver Medal winning Cracovia Krakow squad, which featured a host of familiar names including Michael Gutwald, Luke Ferrara, and none other than Darcy Murphy.
