With over 10,000 followers, Belfast Giants right wing Adam Keefe’s Twitter account is a definite favourite. Belfast have really taken to this Canadian powerhouse since his arrival two seasons ago. It’s no surprise he was selected by the Giants’ season ticket holders as ‘Fan Favourite’ each of the last two seasons and ‘Player’s Player of the Year’ last season. Keefe’s tweets are entertainingly clever and show fans that he isn’t really as scary or fierce as he looks on the ice. Last week when Friday’s Belfast Giants game was called off and Keefe cheered up disappointed fans with this One D-elightful Tweet.
