Langley-based Giants receive awards, gear up for Friday playoffs

Ty Ronning walked away six different 2017-18 team awards.

Giants may have fallen in their last regular home season game. But nevertheless, Friday night was a big night for a few of the Langley-based players – especially team high scorer Ty Ronning.

Friday night on home ice at the Langley Events Centre the G-Men wrapped up their regular season schedule with a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Kelowna Rockets.

But the night was about so much more. It was the fan appreciation night and a night of the annual team awards given out before the game.
