Belfast Giants Ryan Martinelli and Kevin Raine make the switch to follow teammate Jackson Whistle to Elite League rival the Sheffield Steelers.
Martinelli departs after 2 seasons in Belfast, whilst Raine makes the switch after just 1. They both played crucial roles in securing the challenge cup for the club last season.
Both players were at the end of their contracts and it is unclear whether staying at Belfast was an option for the pair.
No news about the signings has been confirmed by either team at this point.
The move leaves 2 big holes at the Giants blue-line for Keefe to fill for the upcoming campaign.
Another bitter blow for Giants fans.
