Playing position


Matt Nickerson joined the Giants straight from the Fife Flyers in 2015 following two seasons spent with the Gardiner Conference side. Although a large spell of the 2015/16 seasons was spent on the sidelines due to injury, Nickerson became a firm fans favourite on the blueline in Belfast and posted four goals and six assists, good for ten points in 45 games played.
