The Western Hockey League’s Vancouver Giants are back at the Ladner Leisure Centre when they open their 2021 main training camp on Thursday.

Cash donations will be accepted at the door with all proceeds to the CKNW Kids’ Fund.

The Giants will also be playing two pre-season games at the LLC, with the Kelowna Rockets visiting on Sept. 15 and Kamloops Blazers in town a week later, Sept. 22. Both games start at 7 p.m.

They will open the WHL regular season Oct. 2 in Victoria and will entertain Prince George in their home opener on Oct. 8 at the Langley Events Centre.
