Pre-Game Report: Giants vs. Cougars
The Vancouver club is coming off a 4-2 victory over the Tri-City Americans on Sunday. The G-Men now sit four points back of the fourth place Seattle Thunderbirds. Vancouver GM Scott Bonner acquired 19-year-old import forward Dominik Volek from the Red Deer Rebels on Thursday. The native of Praha, Czech Republic has 15 goals and 9 assists in 32 WHL games this season. Giants captain Dalton Thrower enters Friday's action on a four game point streak.
The Cougars hosted the Seattle Thunderbirds for back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday but lost them both by 9-7 and 2-1 scores. Prince George forward Zach Pochiro has picked up at least a point in his last eight games including a four point night in Tuesday's high scoring loss. The Cougars are on the outside of the playoff picture at the moment as they're four point back of eighth place Tri-City, and the Americans also have two games in hand.
