Colin Shields

Colin Shields
  • Position: Forward
  • Born: 27/1/1980 --- Glasgow, Scotland
  • For the second season running the Giants signed a top Scottish forward, Colin Shields following in the footsteps of Tony Hand.

    Brought in later into the season after a succesful spell playing NCAA College Hockey in the USA, Colin filled the final piece of the 05-06 Giants team jigsaw, quickly settling into his top line role as a centre and made an immediate impact bringing balance to the lines and adding an extra creative dimension.

    The following year Shields returned to North America where he split 57 games between Idaho and Fresno putting the puck in the net a credible 16 times to go with 27 assists for 43 points. Despite these numbers Shields was tempted once more across the Atlantic last season when he signed up for the Newcastle Vipers.

    Once in Newcastle, despite a bit of a slow start, Shields had his most productive year since his junior days, despite missing a few games with a minor injury. 36 goals were added to 35 assists for 71 points in just 55 games.

    Shields returned to Belfast for the 2008/9 season and spent the next 3 seasons in Belfast acting as captain in 2010/11. Despite consistently putting up huge numbers - including a club record 111 points in 72 games in 2009/10 - Shields departed for a year in France before moving to Sheffield in 2012/13. "Traded" to Belfast for Scott Champagne, Shields now sits atop the all time points list ahead of former captain George Awada and returns for a 6th season aiming to extend his record and chase the all time top goal scorer record for good measure.
