Giants send DeRoose to Moose Jaw

Vancouver makes roster move, acquiring sixth round bantam draft pick

The Vancouver Giants have traded forward Tristyn DeRoose to the Moose Jaw Warriors.

The 1999-born forward, who is from Saskatchewan, had a goal and five assists in 55 games for the Giants in 2016/17.

The six-foot-three, 188-pound winger also had 15 fighting majors, which were the second most in the Western Hockey League.

In exchange, Vancouver receives a sixth round draft pick in the 2020 WHL bantam draft.

With the roster move, the Giants are down to 27 players — 15 forwards, nine defencemen and three goaltenders.

The team needs to be down to 25 players for the start of the WHL season on Sept. 22.

Vancouver wrapped up the pre-season with three victories over the weekend, completing the exhibition season with five wins and one loss.
