The American forward makes it two seasons in-a-row in Belfast – helping the Giants to the Elite League and Challenge Cup titles in 2018/19.

Smotherman signed in Belfast from the Iserlohn Roosters of Germany’s DEL and made an immediate impact – including scoring the memorable Challenge Cup Final game winning goal in overtime against the Guildford Flames on Sunday 10th March.

Smotherman’s first season in teal was made the more impressive when, a few days prior to his arrival in Belfast – he changed his travel plans upon learning that the team had picked up an injury and arrived overnight in-time to face the Nottingham Panthers on Sunday 3rd February.

From Corvallis, Oregon and grew up in Westborough, Massachusetts, Smotherman was selected in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft – in Round #4, 116th overall, by the Atlanta Thrashers. Smotherman went on to play in the NHL for the Thrashers as well as 373 AHL games, posting 78 goals and 86 assists good for 164 points.

The 6’3”, 225 lbs forward won the Calder Cup with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves in the 2007/08 season, playing 99 games and adding 23 goals and 27 assists, good for 50 points on his way to helping the Atlanta Thrashers’ affiliate to a championship.

Smotherman’s career moved to Europe in 2011/12 when he joined Danish side EfB Ishockey and was named on the league’s All-Star team for most goals and most points thanks to 31 goals and 29 assists, good for 60 points in 39 games played.

Jordan also suited up in Sweden from 2012/13 to 2015/16 before returning to the USA with the Manchester Monarchs where he posted 46 goals and 46 assists, good for 92 points in 87 games and was named in the ECHL’s 2017/18 All-Star team.
