Well Giant’s fans, what a morning this has been already. After a signing being teased last night, I was not expecting this, and I don’t know about you but I am over the moon to be able to welcome back to Belfast Ice, #89, Jonathan Boxill!
29 year- old Boxill is returning to Belfast after spending the 2017-18 season with Milton Keynes Lightening and this will be his third season with the Giants overall and has played 126 games with us overall. While playing for the Nottingham Panthers over the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons, Boxill earned a call up to Team GB, playing in the 2015-16 World Championships, where he helped in the winning of two silver medals.
Boxill’s Ice Hockey career so far has seen him spend time playing with the NCAA’s New England College and he has also spent a small period of time during the 2014-15 season with Adelaide Adrenaline of the AIHL.
Welcome back to Belfast, Boxy! It’s great to have you home!
