Vancouver Giants trade netminder Sim

Will play for Regina Pats

Drew Sim is headed for Regina.

Vancouver Giants General Manager Barclay Parneta announced Wednesday, Oct. 13, that the Langley-based team has traded the 2003-born goaltender to the Regina Pats.

In return, the Giants will receive a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2024 WHL Prospects Draft.

Originally selected by the Giants in Round 3 (46th overall) in the 2018 WHL Prospects Draft, Sim has appeared in 11 games over the past two seasons, going 5-2-1 with a 3.17 goals-against average and an .846 save percentage and one shutout.

“We would like to thank Drew for his contributions to the Vancouver Giants and we wish him the best in his next hockey chapter,” said Parneta.

When Sim was signed as an underage 15-year-old player, Parneta described the 6’2” 190 lb. Albertan as “a tall, athletic goaltender that competes to stop every puck fired his way.”

He followed up with a 4-0 record in the playoffs with a 1.00 goals-against-average, a .966 save percentage and one shutout en route to a league championship victory.

Sim also backstopped Team Central to a 2018 Alberta Cup victory with a 3-0 record, a 0.67 goals-against-average, a .970 save percentage and two shutouts.
