Biography

The 2017/18 season will be Saviano’s second consecutive season in Belfast following his arrival last year.

Steve Saviano, a 5’7” 35 year old from Reading, Massachusetts in the U.S.A, posted 18 goals and 30 assists in his inaugural season with the Giants, good for 48 points in 56 games played.

Saviano picked up the Elite League Player of the Week accolade in February following his four-goal game against Fife and was also awarded the Coach’s Player of the Year Award at the Giants Awards Night in March.

The forward joined the Giants from the Bolzano Foxes of the Austrian Hockey League and posted 11 goals and 19 assists – helping his team advance to the end of season playoffs.

Before Bolzano, Saviano linked up with new Giants signing Dustin Johner during spells with Djurgårdens and Växjö Lakers HC of the Swedish Elite League.

Steve also had four successful years in NCAA hockey with the University of New Hampshire where he was team Captain, Hockey East All-Star as well as Player of the Year and also collected awards for Best Forward and Sportsmanship.

Steve Saviano’s signing was made possible by our partnership with the Ulster University Business School.
