Two Vancouver Giants – including the team’s leading scorer – are facing criminal charges.
19-year old defenceman Brett Kulak and 18-year old right winger Jackson Houck are each charged with assault causing bodily harm.
Kulak – who’s the team’s top scorer – faces a second charge of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.
CKNW has learned the charges stem from an August 18th house party in Delta, but the details are not clear.
Both men have had three court appearances so far.
Kulak is due back November 20th; Houck February 28th of next year.
In the meantime, both continue to play for the Giants.
General Manager Scott Bonner and coach Don Hay have declined comment, saying the matter is before the courts.
A representative for the Western Hockey League says they have no comment at this time.
