Vancouver got Max Gildon in the 3rd round from Plano Texas..they say if they can talk him into playing here..he has all the tools to be a #1 draft pick.

That Benson goal was a beauty. I live in North Delta so the games have been a 30 minute walk and only $10. Great hockey. Even though we got killed tonight

Giants v Rockets is televised Wednesday night at 7pm. I'll get my first glimpse of Benson. If that highlight reel goal above is any indication it should be a fun season of watching him and the team improve.

Benson got 5 and a game unfortunately but already has 4 points in 3 games this season, what a stud this kid is going to be. Future top 3 pick in 2016 IMO.

I dont feel like they fell apart .  I just think you may be underestimating what Benson means to this team .  This kid is something special . His team plays bigger when he's in the line up .    16 years old !!    this dude is a beast

I saw both Giants games in the weekend in Prince George and Benson was basically invisible. I was expecting something a little more after all the talking up he's been getting in this thread. The games were fairly close and entertaining though.

Edit: Should add that he did seem to be a pretty good skater.

he is still a 16 year old but I think he will impress us all in the near future ..  these young guys are just learning how to work together .. we can't expect that this is the year they are gonna be champions ..

Wow? Loved how Benson stick lifted the D's stick to create an offensive chance then just coasted off the wing. Show's that his skill is there along with that speed.
