Giants Select Forward Duncan Shin in Round 2 of the 2020 WHL U.S. Prospects Draft
Vancouver, B.C. - With their second pick (38th overall) in the 2020 WHL U.S. Prospects Draft, the Vancouver Giants are proud to select 2005-born forward Duncan Shin (Chandler, AZ).
Shin, a left-handed shot, is 5'10" and 155 pounds. In 2019-20 he played with the Shattucks-St. Mary's Sabres 14U team and potted 25 goals along with 40 assists for 65 points in 58 games while adding 18 penalty minutes. In 2018-19 he managed 34 goals and 40 assists for 74 points in 57 games with the LA Jr. Kings 13U program.
Giants Scouting Director Daryl Anning says, "Duncan Shin has elite talent. His hockey IQ is exceptional. He's a skilled player that plays a strong 200-foot game. He doesn't back down from physicality and has put up some excellent numbers over the past few seasons."
Earlier in the draft, the Giants selected defenceman Philippe Blais-Savoie with the seventh overall pick.
