Blair Riley has agreed a new deal with the Belfast Giants which will keep the captain at the club for a third straight season.

Canadian forward Riley, 32, joined the Giants from AHL outfit Stockton Heat in 2016 and played in last season's Challenge Cup-winning team.

Riley's decision is a further boost for the Giants after the signing of former NHL player Patrick Dwyer.

The Giants have also signed Lewis Hook, Josh Roach and Jonathan Boxill.
