Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum Trevor Cox has been traded from the Medicine Hat Tigers to the Vancouver Giants.

South Surrey’s Cox dealt to Giants

Western Hockey League sniper to play his final season of junior hockey in front of hometown fans.

Trevor Cox is moving a little closer to home.

On Wednesday, the 20-year-old South Surrey hockey player was dealt from the Western Hockey League’s Medicine Hat Tigers to his hometown Vancouver Giants, in a deal that saw 19-year-old defenceman Clayton Kirichenko and a draft pick head to Alberta.

Cox is among the WHL’s most talented snipers – last season, he finished second in the league in scoring, with 29 goals and 109 points.

“We’re thrilled to add an elite level offensive player like Trevor to our lineup,” said Giants general manager Scott Bonner said in a release.

This season, Cox – who will be one of three over-age players on the Giants’ roster – has eight points in six games. He is currently out of the lineup due to injury, but is expected back on the ice in about two weeks.

Cox is an alum of Semiahmoo Minor Hockey Association, and he also played one season with the BC Major Midget League’s Valley West Hawks before moving to the junior ranks.

Last season, in the midst of the WHL scoring race – which he led for most of the year – Cox told Black Press that while individual points were nice, it was playoff success he is ultimately chases.

“Everyone wants to win the Memorial Cup,” he said.

Now with the Giants, he’ll be counted on to get his new team into the playoffs – the team has missed the postseason two of the last three seasons.

Vancouver currently sits eighth in the WHL’s Western Conference.
