Local boy Galea first played for the Pitbulls back in the 2010-11 season as a fresh-faced 16-year old making his senior hockey debut. He then went on to spend a couple of seasons with the Slough Jets before returning home in 2014.

During these last four seasons, Galea has developed into one of the team’s most dependable players on the blue line. In 2016, he was named the team’s Most Improved Player and followed that up the following year with the team’s top honour, Player of the Year.

Always popular in the dressing room, he was also named Players’ Player of the Year in 2016. An accolade that has been rewarded by Galea wearing the ‘A’ for the past two seasons.
