Thornton bows out

Coach Steve Thornton quit the Belfast Giants last night to be replaced by Doug Christiansen who had been in charge of the Edinburgh Capitals for the past three seasons.

The 31-year-old Christiansen was selected as Coach of the Year by the British Ice Hockey Writer's Association and arrives in Belfast with an excellent reputation.

“It's a tremendous honour to be put in charge of an organisation with such a history as the Belfast Giants,” says Christiansen.
