Right Winger JJ Piccinich has already amassed more Championships in his relatively short career than many pros could dream of. The New Jersey native makes his move to Belfast after initially joining the Giants in the 2021/22 season. Piccinich has iced for several teams in North America, including Boston University, London Knights, Orlando Solar Bears, Newfoundland Growlers, and Tulsa Oilers, between 2014 and 2020.

During his first spell in Belfast, Piccinich notched an impressive 97 total points in 65 games. J.J.’s contribution on the ice saw him named as the 2021/22 Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) Player of the Year, registering the most assists, goals, and total points throughout the season, and helping the Giants to win their sixth EIHL league title and fourth Challenge Cup.

Having departed the Giants at the conclusion of the 2021/22 season, Piccinich spent the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons with Stjernen in the Norwegian Eliteserien, where he notched 129 total points in just 93 games, guiding the Fredrikstad-based side to the playoffs in both campaigns.

Noted for his skating ability, Piccinich is relishing the opportunity to play on the larger Olympic sized ice sheet again at The SSE Arena, Belfast with the hope that yet another Championship season isn’t too far away.
