Dwyer, who becomes the 199th player to ice for the Giants, played for the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes for seven straight seasons between 2008-2015. The 35 year old posted 42 goals and 51 assists, good for 93 points in 416 games.

Dwyer made Sweden home for the 2015/16 season with MODO of the Swedish Elite League. After a professional tryout in 2016/17 with the Columbus Blue Jackets, Dwyer returned to the Hurricanes organisation with their AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers. In 58 games with the Checkers, Dwyer posted 14 goals + 26 assists and helped Charlotte into the AHL playoffs.

The six foot, 176 pound forward was a fourth round NHL draft pick by the Atlanta Thrashers in 2002 and then spent four seasons in the NCAA at Western Michigan, captaining the team in his senior year. Dwyer also iced at international level in the 2012 IIHF World Championship for Team USA and scored in their famous 5-4 win over Team Canada.
