VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Giants have acquired 20-year-old left-wing Trevor Cheek from the Calgary Hitmen for a fourth-round Western Hockey League draft pick in 2013 and a fifth-round pick in 2014.

Cheek, a six-foot-two, 198-pound native of Vancouver, Wash., had 23 goals and 49 assists in 67 games with the Hitmen last season.

"We are excited to add Trevor to our group as it gives us a big power forward for our top-6 group," Giants general manager Scott Bonner said in a statement.

"Players in the mould of Trevor are the type that prosper in our system and our team's style is suited to them."

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
