The Vancouver Giants acquired defenceman Joel Rogers from the Swift Current Broncos in exchange for defenceman Dalton Reum. Rogers, a native of Abbotsford, B.C., has played his entire 4 year career in the WHL with Swift Current. Originally drafted in the 4th round of the 2006 WHL bantam draft by the Broncos, the 19 year old is considered a solid stay at home blueliner. In 28 games this season he has 3 assists and 40 penalty minutes. He will arrive in Vancouver later tonight and be available to play tomorrow when the Giants take on the Everett Silvertips.
