Giants Add Volek from Red Deer

The Vancouver Giants made another trade on Thursday, this time adding 19-year-old Czech forward Dominik Volek from the Red Deer Rebels in exchange for a third and fourth round bantam draft pick. Volek will fill the vacant import spot on the Giants roster that was left open when Andreas Eder was re-assigned to Germany and will likely make his Giants debut on Friday night against the Prince George Cougars.

Volek has also just returned from the World Junior Hockey Championships where he tallied one assist in five games while representing the Czech Republic.
