Pre-Game Report: Giants vs. Chiefs

The Vancouver Giants (6-9-1-1) will host the Spokane Chiefs (11-5-0-0) on Friday night at the Pacific Coliseum in the first of two meetings between the teams this season. Last year, the two clubs split the season series, each winning on home ice.

The G-Men enter Friday's action on a roll after back-to-back wins in Prince George preceded by a win over the Blazers in Kamloops last weekend. Dalton Thrower had the OT winner on Wednesday against the Cougars while Jackson Houck found the back of the net for a third consecutive game to give him seven goals on the season. Jared Rathjen made 34 saves in goal for Vancouver to pick up his first victory of the year.

The big story for the Chiefs this season has been the offensive production of Mitch Holmberg who leads the WHL in points with 38 in 16 games. The Sherwood Park, Alberta native is on pace to put up 81 goals and 90 assists. Entering Friday's action, the Chiefs sit in sixth in the Western Conference but have lost their last two straight after falling to Portland on Saturday before dropping a 5-4 decision in Kamloops on Wednesday night.
