The Belfast Giants started their season on a disappointing note by losing 3-0 to Dundee Stars in their Challenge Cup game at the Dundee Ice Arena on Friday.

Curtis Leinweber scored in the first period, with Bobby Chaumont finding the net and Leinweber grabbing his second during the second period.

The Giants had lost 6-3 to the same opposition in a friendly on Sunday.

New player-coach Derrick Walser will hope for better in Saturday's next Challenge Cup game against Edinburgh.
