The Vancouver Giants have acquired a 2nd round pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft and a 3rd round pick in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft in exchange for 20-year-old centre James Henry. Originally selected in the 9th round of the 2006 WHL Bantam Draft by the Giants, Henry leaves Vancouver having played the 2nd most regular season games in franchise history (281), 8th on the all-time points list with 184, and 1st all-time in shorthanded career goals (10).

“It’s never easy trading your captain, especially a guy like James Henry who has been so loyal to the organization,” said Executive Vice-President and General Manager. “This gives James (Winnipeg, MB) an opportunity to play closer to home and with a high end team who clearly are setting themselves up for a run at a title.”

With the departure of Henry, Brendan Gallagher has been named the 11th captain in franchise history.
