About the Vancouver Giants
The Western Hockey League (WHL) is lower than the National Hockey League (NHL), but still very exciting hockey to watch, plus much more affordable. Giants’ tickets usually cost between about $23 and $30, which is cheap compared to games for the Vancouver Canucks.
As part of the Western Hockey League, the Vancouver Giants play against teams from all four Western Canadian provinces as well as from Washington and Oregon in the States. Other BC teams include the Victoria Royals, Kamloops Blazers, Prince George Cougars and Kootenay Ice (which is based in Cranbrook).
Vancouver Giants players range in age from about 17 to 20 and they all hope one day to make it to professional hockey, and a fair number of them do.
Beginning in 2016 Vancouver Giants play home games at the Langley Events Centre at 7888 200th Street in Langley. The team practices though at the Ladner Leisure Centre which is located at 4600 Clarence Taylor Crescent in Delta. Most practices are open to the public.
