Victoria Royals acquire draft pick in deal with Giants


October 16, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – The Victoria Royals today announced that the club has acquired an eighth round draft pick in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft from the Vancouver Giants in exchange for forward Trent Lofthouse (1994).

Victoria sends Lofthouse to Vancouver after the Surrey, BC native was picked up by the Royals in a trade with the Everett Silvertips last January. With Victoria, Lofthouse registered six points (4g-2a) and six penalty minutes in 20 regular season games as well as one assist in four playoff contests.
