Giants Bring Kyle Osterberg To Belfast

The Stena Line Belfast Giants are pleased to announce the signing of 29-year-old forward Kyle Osterberg for the 2024/25 season.

From Minnesota, Osterberg spent the 2023/24 season with fellow Elite League side Fife Flyers, where he recorded 61 total points in 57 games in all competitions. Prior to making the move to Kirkcaldy, Osterberg spent six seasons icing for teams across Europe, including Sparta Sarpsborg, Karlskrona HK, DVTK Jegesmedvék, HKM Zvolen, and Eisbären Regensburg, notching over 220 total points in 235 games.

Adam Keefe, Head Coach of the Belfast Giants, said: “We’re very pleased that Kyle will be joining us next season. As well as adding a lot to our offensive line, Kyle is known for his presence in the locker room, and I think he’ll be a great fit for our culture here in Belfast. Last season, he was a standout player for Fife, and always someone that impressed, so I don’t doubt that he’ll prove to be a great addition to our roster.”

Before turning professional, Osterberg spent four seasons playing with National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) side, the University of Minnesota-Duluth, making 149 appearances for the Bulldogs, and being crowned an NCAA National Champion in 2016/17. Osterberg was also a part of Team USA’s U17 and U18 men’s rosters, taking part in the 2012 World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic. 

Commenting on joining the Belfast Giants, Kyle Osterberg said: “Belfast is somewhere my family and I really want to call home. The SSE Arena, Belfast is fantastic, and will make going to rink so enjoyable every day. The Giants’ fans are awesome too. As a player, you can hear and see their passion, dedication, and love for the club.

“This season has me more excited than ever to be part of such a great organisation, with a winning culture and electric fanbase. I believe that the city of Belfast and the Giants’ fans are in for one heck of a season that they won’t want to miss. I cannot wait to pull on the jersey for the first time.”
