No stranger to the EIHL (Elite Ice Hockey League) or in fact The SSE Arena, Belfast; Barriga will pull on a Belfast Giants jersey for the first-time, having spent last season across the water in Scotland with EIHL opponents Dundee Stars – during which the 27-year-old made a strong impression on the ice; posting 25 goals and 31 assists in 54 games, good for 56 points.

Prior to venturing into pro-hockey in the UK with the Dundee Stars, California-born Barriga skated with NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Division 1 team American International College. In four years with the ‘Yellow Jackets’ he won seven championships and totalled 62 points in 107 appearances on the ice.

Barriga will don the #96 teal jersey for the 2023/24 campaign.
