Vancouver makes move in picking up centreman from Prince George

The Vancouver Giants continue shaping their roster for the upcoming season, acquiring Brad Morrison from the Prince George Cougars.

The Cougars will receive a conditional second round pick in the 2018 Western Hockey League bantam draft.

The 1997-born forward could fill one of the three over-age spots on the Giants roster in 2017/18.

“Brad is a highly skilled forward who will provide an added dimension to our offence and power play,” said general manager Glen Hanlon.

Morrison had 21 goals and 31 assists in 2016/17, his third consecutive 20-goal and 50-point season.

His numbers last year would have ranked him tied for first in assists and second in both goals and points.

The six-foot, 170-pound centreman — who is from Prince George — has 85 goals and 103 assists in 260 career WHL games and was a first round (seventh overall) pick of the Cougars in the 2012 bantam draft.

He was also a fourth round draft pick of the New York Rangers in the 2015 NHL Draft.
