David Goodwin, who captained Belfast Giants to the treble last season, will be back in teal, the club confirmed on Tuesday.

Having already brought back Will Cullen this week, the Giants announced that former captain Goodwin would also be heading back to the SSE Arena until the end of this season.

"We couldn’t be happier that David Goodwin will be returning to Belfast. He leads by example and embodies what it means to be a Giant," said Head Coach Adam Keefe. "Throughout his time in Belfast, he was always someone who stepped up and did what it took to win, and having people like that on your roster is invaluable. Goody is an out-and-out professional, and I look forward to working alongside him again."

During his three spells with the Giants, Goodwin recorded 211 total points, including 76 in 57 games during the treble-winning 2022/23 season. Goodwin played 10 games in Jaca, Spain, this season and put up 21 points.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Giants confirmed that Quinn Preston is leaving the team. The forward had 29 points through 34 games in all EIHL competitions this season, logging an average of over 20 minutes per game.
