Last night on White Spot Giants This Week, Dan O’Connor first spoke with a former Vancouver Giant who has now become the Western Hockey Leagues Manager of Player Development. Zach Hodder played parts of five seasons in the WHL before utilizing his WHL Scholarship to pursue a degree in Communications.

Brown was originally selected by the Giants in Round 2 of the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft, and he’ll dive into the first three seasons of his junior hockey journey and much more below.
