Ast Traded to Medicine Hat
Here's the release from the Giants:
The Vancouver Giants have traded forward Anthony Ast to the Medicine Hat Tigers in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2016 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.
The 18-year old Richmond native has played 109 regular season WHL game, all with the Giants. In those games, he had 15 goals and 26 assists (41 points).
"Anthony’s agent had asked us to find him a new team and Medicine Hat seemed to be the best fit," said Giants' Executive Vice President and General Manager Scott Bonner. "Anthony is a really good person who has had some bad luck with injuries. Hopefully those injuries are behind him now."
