Whitecotton, a highly experienced European hockey player, joins from German side Straubing Tigers where he posted 37 goals and 72 assists over five years and 220 games.
The left-handed forward will renew his partnership with Calvin Elfring.
He is set to debut for the Giants against Bolzano Foxes in the first game of a pre-season double header at the Odyssey Arena on 31 August.
Head Coach Paul Adey said: "I am very pleased to have secured Dustin's signature.
"I believe he will be an exciting offensive player to watch and will be expected to be one of our top performing forwards. Whitecotton is highly experienced in European hockey and played with Calvin Elfring in Germany. Most importantly, Dustin knows what it takes to win which will help us to challenge on all fronts this season."
