Pound Re-Signs With Belfast Giants

The Stena Line Belfast Giants are pleased to announce the re-signing of 25-year-old defenceman Cameron Pound for the upcoming 2024/25 season.

Pound, originally from Solihull, initially joined the Giants midway through the 2023/24 season, before which he spent three seasons playing for Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, icing more than 50 times for the Huskies, and heling them reach the USports playoffs during both the 2021/22 and 2022/23 seasons.

Before making the move to North America, Pound featured as part of Coventry Blaze’s U16’s roster, where he also represented the Midlands in the English Ice Hockey Association Conference on four occasions. Pound has also notched 20 appearances for Great Britain’s U18 and U20 teams, taking part in the International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships four times. 

Adam Keefe, Head Coach of the Belfast Giants, said:

“Cam is a great young player, who came to us highly recommended last season. He’s full of enthusiasm and passion, and his game definitely came on a lot last year. I’m looking forward to working with him again, helping to grow his knowledge and skillset throughout the season.” 

In his first season in Belfast, Pound made 41 appearances in all competitions for the Giants, recording eight total points, and scoring his first professional goal against the Manchester Storm. Pound’s father, Ian, who went to the Chicago Blackhawks with the 221st pick in the 1985 National Ice Hockey League, is a veteran of the British ice hockey scene, having spent 12 seasons across various leagues, earning seven caps for Team GB in the process.

Commenting on making a return to the Belfast Giants, Cameron Pound said: “I am super excited to be coming back to Belfast for another season. I can’t wait to play in front of the best fans in the Elite League again and bring some silverware back this great city.”
