Shields, the all-time leading scorer for the Giants and Team GB, will exclusively wear BAUER equipment during the 2017/18 season including BAUER VAPOR 1X skates, NEXUS 1N stick, SUPREME 1S gloves and BAUER 4500 helmet.
The Team GB forward claimed the #1 position in the international scoring standings during the 2017 IIHF World Championship in Belfast. Shields surpassed the existing record in style, netting a hat-trick against the Netherlands as Team GB claimed the Gold Medal and promotion to Division 1A in 2018.
Lucy Thomasson, Director of Bauer UK:
“Colin is one of the top British players in the Elite League and will be a great ambassador for BAUER UK. We are honoured to have him join our roster of ‘BAUER UK Athletes’ and look forward to supporting him throughout the 2017/18 season”.
Steve Thornton, Head of Hockey Operations:
“We are pleased to have BAUER UK supporting the Giants for yet another season. BAUER UK’s sponsorship of Colin Shields is the perfect choice to represent their brand, especially during Colin’s testimonial season.”
