On Friday night Byram earned first star honours with a two goal, three assist effort, becoming the first Vancouver Giants defenceman to ever record five points in one game.

He’s currently in the middle of a six-game point streak and has totalled four goals and seven assists in that span.

His 39 points rank him second on the team in scoring, and his 13 goals rank him tops among all WHL defencemen.

Originally selected by the Giants third overall in 2016, Bowen Byram has already compiled an impressive local and international resume. In 2017/18 he was named Western Conference Rookie of the Year after producing six goals and 21 assists through 60 games.

He added three goals and four assists for seven points in seven playoff games.

Since November, 2017 Byram has represented Canada on three occasions.

First, he helped guide Canada Red to a Silver Medal at the 2017 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

Then in April, 2018 he suited up for Canada as an under-ager at the World Under-18’s.

In August, Byram played a huge part in Canada’s Gold Medal at the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup.

He is considered to be a top prospect for the 2019 NHL Draft which takes place in Vancouver in June and later this month he’ll suit up for Team Cherry at the 2019 Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

Byram and the Vancouver Giants return to action this week on Wednesday night down South when they clash with the Tri-City Americans at 7:05 p.m.

Giants will also battle the Spokane Chiefs on Friday night before returning home Saturday to face Canucks prospect Jett Woo and the Moose Jaw Warriors.
