VANCOUVER BC – The Vancouver Giants are pleased to announce that David Musil, the 16 year old son of former NHL’er Frank Musil, will join the Club for the 2009/10 season.
Musil, a 6’4 defenseman, participated in Fargo, ND at the recent U18 Championships as an underage player. Born in Edmonton, Musil and his family have recently moved back to the Vancouver area, which made David eligible to play in the WHL this season.
The WHL had a waiver draft in which Musil’s rights were retained by Kootenay and later traded to Vancouver. David should arrive in Vancouver for training camp in mid-August.(Nathan also is a writer for Maineiacs Post to Post and the Maine Hockey Journal. He can be reached at email@example.com)
