Giants acquire 20-year-old left-wing Trevor Cheek from Hitmen

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."

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
