Vancouver Giants General Manager Barclay Parneta announced today that the Giants have acquired 2000-born defenceman Ty Ettinger (Ardrossan, AB) from the Brandon Wheat Kings in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.
Originally selected by the Wheat Kings in the fifth round (95th overall) in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft, Ettinger has suited up in 46 career games with Brandon. Last season he dressed in 45 games and registered two goals, five assists, 47 penalty minutes and a +10 rating.
With the addition of Ettinger, the Giants roster now consists of 26 players: 15 forwards, nine defencemen and two goaltenders.
Ettinger will join the Giants in time for their three-game road trip that begins Wednesday in Kelowna against the Rockets. Puck drops at 7:05 PM from Prospera Place.
