The Giants, who picked up overage netminder Adam Morrison in a trade early in this completed season and played him in 57 regular season games, have two goalie prospects they like in Jackson Whistle, 16, and Payton Lee, 15. General manager Scott Bonner has already said that he doesn’t want to go with two youngsters in goal in 2012-13, and he’s been trying to land a commitment from Matt Tomkins, 17, who’s fresh off a hotshot campaign with the Alberta Junior A League’s Sherwood Park Crusaders.

agreed confusing 17 yr old tender is not exactly a veteran, esp from a level down. I hope Bonner has other options in mind.

Thumbs down

I wish the Giants would just let Whistle and Lee take over the reins. They need the experience in order to grow.
