Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Giants are proud to announce that the hockey club has signed 2001-born defenceman Parker Hendren to a Western Hockey League Standard Player Agreement. The Giants selected Hendren in the seventh round of the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft.
“We have been very happy with Parker’s development,” said Glen Hanlon, General Manager. “We made it a priority to sign Parker because of his improved play from start to finish last season. By signing Parker, we will now be able to personally work with him to help him take the next step to the WHL level.”
Hendren, a Regina product, played Midget AAA for the Regina Pat Canadians in 2016/17, tallying 15 points in 43 games. He helped the Pat Canadians to the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League championship and a spot in the Telus Cup, Canada’s national Midget tournament.
“It means a lot to me,” said Hendren of inking with the G-Men. “I’m really excited. I’ve always dreamt about playing in the WHL, so it means a lot.”
