Giants Select Ty Ronning in First Round
The Vancouver Giants Hockey Club has selected Burnaby’s Ty Ronning with their first pick, 15th overall, in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft. Ronning played last season with the powerhouse Burnaby Winter Club, where he tallied 77 goals playing on a line with fellow 1st Round picks Mathew Barzal and Adam Musil. The 5’6”, 140 lbs right winger is the son of former Vancouver Canuck, Cliff Ronning.
“We are excited to add Ty, as we feel he has the potential to be a very entertaining, offensive player”, says Giants Executive VP and General Manager, Scott Bonner. “He comes from a winning program and obviously has a father that will help prepare him for the next challenges in his career.”
