Peacock Is A Giant Again
The Stena Line Belfast Giants are pleased to announce the re-signing of Craig Peacock who will go directly into the Giants lineup for this Saturdayâ€™s home game against the Sheffield Steelers and Sundayâ€™s game away to the Coventry Blaze. The 25 year old forward returns to Belfast from Frederikshavn, Denmark who he signed with in May after playing four seasons with the Giants.
During his years in Belfast, Craig Peacock won both major championships with the organisation, the Elite League Title in 2012 and the Playoff Championship in 2010. Peacock arrived in Belfast in 2009 with an impressive CV, scoring 94 points in 48 games for the Peterborough Phantoms in the 2008/09 season. Throughout his time in Belfast, Craig became a firm fan favourite, playing with his heart on his sleeve for the Giants and currently sits in 4th position in the Giants all-time leading points scoring charts with 225 points in 239 games played.
Belfast Giants General Manager Todd Kelman, who was instrumental in bringing Craig Peacock to Belfast in 2009, spoke of his delight at his return:
“We signed Peaks when he was just a kid and he has grown into one of the top British players in this league. Â We are excited to get him back in Belfast where he belongs and we hope to have him here for a long time.”
“He is a natural scorer and has been a part of some big moments in Giants history playing a key role on both Championship teams he has been a part of. Â I know our fans will be pleased to have him back in Belfast and I know he is excited to be coming back here.”
“We have been hit with some injury trouble and getting everything signed for Craig to be in the lineup this weekend is key for us as we go upÂ againstÂ two of the top teams in the league in Sheffield and Coventry.”
Craig Peacock will make his first appearance of the season in a Giants jersey on Saturday night at the Odyssey Arena when the Giants take on the Steelers, face-off 7pm.
