Vancouver Giants recruit new forward to Langley

The LEC-based team took the third pick in the WHL draft.

The Vancouver Giants have picked forward Justin Sourdif as the third overall selection in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft.

“We’re excited to continue to build our team with another Lower Mainland product,” said Glen Hanlon, Giants general manager. “Justin is a power forward who plays a strong 200-foot game. He’s a player who we have tracked throughout the season. We’re really pleased with his progression, and we’re thrilled to welcome Justin and his family to the Giants.”

Sourdif, a Surrey native, played for the Delta Hockey Academy’s Bantam Prep team during the 2016/17 season. The 5’10”, 158lb forward amassed 32 goals and 34 assists in 29 regular season games and helped Delta to the CSSHL’s Bantam Prep Division championship game. Sourdif also took part in the 2017 U16 BC Cup in April, leading the tournament in scoring with five goals and four assists in four games while playing for the victorious Team White.
