- From the section Ice hockey
Former NHL star Kevin Westgarth is gearing up for his Belfast Giants debut against Cardiff on Saturday.
Westgarth, who helped the LA Kings win the NHL title two years ago, had his first Giants training session at Dundonald on Wednesday.
Canadian native Westgarth is an Irish passport holder and says that a playing stint in Belfast has always been on his agenda.
Belfast Giants chief Steve Thornton believes Westgarth will add "physicality" to his squad and also lead to the other squad members upping their physical presence.
This week's programme also looks back at last weekend's 4-1 win over Braehead and the subsequent 5-1 defeat by Coventry.
