Belfast Giants coach Derrick Walser says he is happy with his squad's pre-season preparations ahead of their Challenge Cup opener away to Fife Flyers on Saturday 3 September.
Walser is beginning his second season at the helm of the Giants and explains that "character and work ethic" have been prime considerations in his recruitment policy ahead of the new campaign.
"The guys that have come in so far are working their tails off. I've been trying to nail down systems, get across how I want to play and what sort of team I want to put together," said Walser.
