The GIANTS organization would like to welcome '03 Forward Harrison Giuliano from North Providence, RI. The 5’9”, 175lbs, lefty was first selected to the Yankee Conference representing the Rhode Island team. Giuliano was then selected as one of the representative players from the New England District to attend the USA Hockey National Development Camp that took place late in July out in Amherst, NY. Giuliano played for team white and contributed with 2 goals during divisional play.
Giuliano will play for the GIANTS U15 team this and is currently preparing for the start of the season. Welcome Harrison and congratulations on your selection, we look forward to the contributions you will make as a GIANT!!

'03 Defensemen Declan Loughnane was selected to participate in the 2018 USA Hockey National Development Camp that took place late in July out in Amherst, NY. Loughnane played for team black and ended the week long camp with 2 assists helping his team to the top of their division standings throughout the camp.
The 5’10”, 181lb, right hander from Milton, MA journey began back in January when he stepped on the ice for open tryouts with players from all over Massachusetts. From there that list was dwindled down to 80, then to 40, and then finally to 17 and of that only 5 Defensemen from Massachusetts were sent to Natty camp. Upon arrival at camp Loughnane played with and competed with 216 other top ‘03s in the country.
Loughnane is force to be reckon with on the ice. As an Offensive Defensemen Loughnane has the ability to rush the puck, score, make plays and recover to defend the zone. His 2017-18 saw 9pts in 16 games in the Elite Junior Prospects League along with being a playmaker throughout the season in several other showcases.
Teammates scouting report on Loughnane is that he is a great guy to have in the locker room, he always loves to joke around but always knows when to be serious. He is always nice to everyone and everyone likes Declan.
Teammate Jake Parker stated; “On the ice, Declan can take over a game with his skating ability and agility. He’s got a great shot and can get it to the net as well. He makes a great first pass on the tape but can also take it out himself if need be. He is a very solid Defensemen.”
Loughnane rejoins the GIANTS this season on the U16 team and is once again focused on improving his game and helping his team along the way to U16 GIANTS national recognition.
Congrats again Declan and we are proud of the hard work you put in and know will continue to put in.
