Winnipeg-born forward joins Langley hockey play

Vancouver Giants have signed 16-year-old Cyle McNabb to their roster.

Vancouver Giants announced the Langley-based hockey club has signed forward Cyle McNabb to a Western Hockey League standard player agreement.

“I’m feeling pretty good,” said McNabb of signing in Vancouver.

“Because I was never drafted and was a listed player, I had to work extra hard to get to this point. The Giants organization has great people in it and a great fan base and I’m excited to sign with them.”

McNabb, who hails from Winnipeg and was born in 2000, spent the 2016/17 season with the Rink Hockey Academy’s Prep team and scored nine goals and 16 assists in 29 games.

“Cyle has worked very hard this year on the ice and in the classroom,” said Giants general manager Glen Hanlon.

“Cyle is a strong two-way centre with exceptional speed. We are very proud to welcome Cyle and his family to the Giants.”
