PREVIEW: GIANTS HEAD TO KELOWNA LOOKING FOR A “W”

Rob Wilton

The Giants look to claim their first win of the preseason tonight in Kelowna against the Rockets. The Giants are 0-1-1 in the preseason following a pair of losses last weekend to Prince George and Victoria. The Rockets are 2-0-1 this preseason after splitting a pair against Kamloops and defeating Victoria.

  • NHL Prospects Zack Ostapchuk (Ottawa Senators) and Jesper Vikman (Vegas Golden Knights) are currently away from the team at NHL Training Camps.
  • Forward Ty Halaburda will dress for the Giants tonight for the first time this preseason. Halaburda did not play after sustaining an upper-body injury last season on March 4.
