Day 2 of Chevrolet Vancouver Giants Training Camp was jam-packed. The morning consisted of a Goalie Session followed by three 45-minute practices – One for each of the three teams (Kane, Gallagher and Lucic). Prior to the evening scrimmages the team held an outdoor barbecue/mixer outside the Ladner Leisure Centre where players, fans, staff and families enjoyed some White Spot burgers and some sunshine. General Manager Barclay Parneta then welcomed the crowd, introduced the staff and set the tone for the evening ahead.
The future of the Giants was brightly on display Friday as 2002-born forwards Krz Plummer (three goals for Black) and Justin Sourdif (two goals for White) did their part offensively while 2001-born forward Lukas Svejkovsky and 2000-born import forward Yannik Valenti looked right at home alongside veteran 20-year-old Jared Dmytriw. The trio combined for four goals and seven points for two games with Team Black. Between the pipes all four signed goaltenders: David Tendeck, Trent Miner, Braedy Euerby and Drew Sim showed well with Drew Sim earning a clean sheet in both of his appearances.
