Colin Ward Joins The Belfast Giants Legends
The Belfast Giants Legends are proud to announce the addition of Colin Ward to their roster for Rob Stewart’s testimonial on Tuesday 18th February.Â Yet another Legend has been added to the roster, with the fantastic news that for the second time this season, former Giant – Ward is returning to The Odyssey ice.
Another of Dave Whistle’s Bracknell acquisitions, ‘Wardy’s’ never say die attitude along with a keen eye for goal over his four seasons in Belfast earned him a place forever in the hearts of the Northern Ireland hockey fans. Colin won an ISL Championship, the club’s first major honour and followed it up in 2003 with a Playoff victory in Nottingham. Just twelve months later, after the inaugural Elite League season he called it a career, the franchise thanked him by retiring the number 11 shirt he worn on 171 occasions.Â When he retired from ice-hockey in 2004, Colin Ward was placed second in the Giants all time leading scorerâ€™s table with 84 goals and 93 assists.
Colin joins Dave Whistle, Paxton Schulte, Kevin Riehl and Stevie Thornton in what is shaping up to an All-Star trip down memory lane!
Fans can purchase tickets for Rob Stewart’s Testimonial from the Odyssey Arena Box Office in person, by calling (028) 9073 9074 or online atÂ Ticketmaster.
