It’s fair to say the Stena Line Belfast Giants have had somewhat of an injury-plagued start to the season having only played 2 games in total this campaign with a full compliment of players.
With the Giants now facing a run of 5 games in 11 nights over the Christmas and New Year period, Head Coach Doug Christiansen has enlisted the services of Giants legend Mark ‘MoTrain’ Morrison to provide some more depth to the team during this challenging point in the season.
29 year old Morrison, a fan favorite in Belfast during his 7 season professional career, has featured in 343 games, chipping in with 24 goals and 34 assists along the way. Morrison is known for his passion and determination which Head Coach Doug Christiansen believes will help the team down the stretch.
“Last weekend against Dundee we were really up against it having to play with a short bench. Bringing back Mark Morrison will give us more options. ‘Mo’ is a legend here in Belfast and I have no doubt that he will do whatever it takes to help the team win. Mark hasn’t played professionally since winning the Playoff Championship in 2010 but he has been training with the guys a few days this week and is excited about getting back on the ice in front of the Odyssey faithful.”
Mark will make his return to the Odyssey Arena tomorrow night when the Giants take on the Edinburgh Capitals. Tickets for the game against Edinburgh are available from the Odyssey Arena Box Office on 028 9073 9074 or online at ww.ticketmaster.ie
