1st Rd Pick Acquired from Broncos to be 6th Overall
This morning, Giants GM Barclay Parneta finally found out the other piece in his 2022 draft-day trade with the Swift Current Broncos, and he’ll have the opportunity to add a difference-maker with the 6th Overall pick in the 2023 WHL Draft.
Vancouver selected defender Colton Alain with the 2022 54th Overall pick, he has already played in seven games in the Western Hockey League as a 15-year-old.
The WHL Draft Lottery took place today, and there was a 4.7% chance that the Giants could win the lottery and move up two spots to 4th Overall, but the Prince Albert Raiders ended up winning the lottery and moving up from 4th to 2nd Overall. Prince Albert owns the #1 and #2 picks in May’s draft.
