Jeff Baum was a late contender for Belfast Giants player of month, thanks to votes from his alma mater

The Belfast Giants December Player of the Month race may be one of the best they’ve ever had as not only did it go down to the wire, it attracted interest not just from Northern Ireland but from further afield.

Initially only between Tyler Soy and wing extraordinaire J.J. Piccinich, defenceman Jeff Baum was unexpectedly thrust into the conversation late in the day when his alma mater, American International College, weighed into the voting.
