Matt Nickerson: Tempted to Belfast after two seasons with the Fife Flyers, the 6ft 4in American is not to be messed with. He will bring a new layer of toughness to the Giants team and he's already nailed on to be a fan favourite at the Odyssey.

THE capture of Forney from the Sheffield Steelers is arguably the signing of the season in the Elite League. Last season's top goalscorer is also only 27 and has many years of putting the puck in the net ahead of him.

AT 36, Desmarais is the oldest member of the Giants forward pack, but with age comes know-how and he knows where the net is. He was worth almost a goal a game in the Swiss B League and he'll be hungry for more.
