Huddersfield have signed Lee Gaskell from Bradford Bulls.
The stand-off has signed a four-year deal and follows former Bulls prop Paul Clough to the Giants after an injury-hit season in the Championship.
Gaskell previously played in the 2011 Grand Final for St Helens and he said: "To be back in Super League is a great feeling.
"This is something I'm looking forward to. The set-up here is really good and all the coaching, conditioning and medical staff have been really good in getting me back to full fitness. I've had a short time here so far and it's good to get that training under my belt.
"There are some big names coming back and some internationals who always keep themselves in good shape so it's going to be nice to catch up with them and see how they go about their business. My aim is to be a consistent member of the 17 week in week out."
Huddersfield managing director Richard Thewlis said: "At his time of signing Lee Gaskell was probably the most sought-after UK-based player in the game.
"We were all delighted when he chose to join the Giants ahead of a number of our rival Super League clubs who were also keen on securing his services.
"Like Cloughy, he has genuine big-match experience and an absolute desire to get himself and his new team-mates into the games and finals that he was brought up on when establishing himself as a starting player at St Helens."
