Long-serving Belfast Giants forward Colin Shields has agreed a ninth season with the club.
Shields has played 425 games for the Giants, scoring 172 goals with 303 assists to top the club’s all-time goalscoring and points tables.
The 36-year-old, who was selected in the 2000 NHL draft by the Philadelphia Flyers, has won numerous trophies with the Giants including two Elite League titles.
Steve Thornton, Head of Hockey Operations, said: “It is great that Colin will make it season number nine in Belfast and in that time he has become one of the top British players in the league.
“He has played a part of some of the most famous moments in Giants history, including the 2010 play-off championship as well as the Elite League title in 2006 and 2014.”
“I am excited to have Colin back in Belfast for another season – he is a natural goalscorer and I know our fans in Belfast will be pleased to have him return for another season.”
