History[edit] Led by majority owner and British Columbia-based businessman Ron Toigo, the City of Vancouver
Vancouver
was granted a WHL franchise for the 2001–02 season. In their inaugural campaign, the Giants compiled 13 wins, 49 losses and six ties. The first goal in franchise history was scored by Tyson Mulock
Tyson Mulock
in a loss to the Kamloops Blazers. The following season, the Giants went 26–37–5–4, good for fourth in the B.C. Division, and made their first playoff appearance, but lost in the first round to the eventual President's Cup champions, the Kelowna Rockets, in four games. Second-year forward Adam Courchaine led the team in scoring with 85 points. His 43 goals stood as a single-season franchise record for six years until second-year forward Evander Kane
Evander Kane
broke it in 2008–09.[2] In the 2003–04 season, the Giants continued to improve, posting a 33–24–9–6, which marked their first winning season. After defeating the Kamloops Blazers
Kamloops Blazers
in the first round, the Giants lost in the second round to the expansion team Everett Silvertips

in six games. Adam Courchaine led the team again in scoring, finishing ninth overall in the League. Hometown rookie Gilbert Brule, the first overall pick in the 2002 WHL Bantam Draft, scored 60 points and earned the Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy as the WHL's best first-year player. In the 2004–05 season, the Giants went 34–30–4–4 and Brule emerged as a WHL star, finishing third in League scoring with 87 points, which remained a franchise record until overager Casey Pierro-Zabotel snapped it in 2008–09.[3] Courchaine tallied 78 points and finished seventh in League scoring, marking the first and only time thus far that the top ten WHL scorers would feature two Giants players. In the playoffs, the Giants lost in the first round to Kelowna. Despite the early exit, the Giants drew many fans to the Coliseum that year due to the NHL lockout; Game 6 against the Rockets drew 16,183 fans.[citation needed] The 2005–06 season featured the Giants' most significant improvement in the standings, becoming one of the WHL's top teams. They finished the season 47–19–0–6, first in the B.C. Division
B.C. Division
and third in the League overall. In the first round of the playoffs, the Giants beat the Prince George Cougars

in five games, then the Portland Winterhawks in the second round, also in five games. In the third and final round, they won eight-straight, sweeping both the Everett Silvertips and Moose Jaw Warriors

en route to their first-ever President's Cup. Gilbert Brule had returned to the team midway through the season after starting 2005–06 with the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets and earned the airBC Trophy as the playoff MVP after scoring 16 goals and 30 points in 18 post-season games, including five goals and 12 points in the finals. By winning the WHL league title, the Giants earned their first Memorial Cup

appearance in Moncton, New Brunswick. The Giants finished the round-robin tied for third, then defeated the Peterborough Petes in a tie-breaker in order to move on to the playoffs, but lost to the Moncton

Wildcats in the semifinal. Brule scored 12 points in five games, earning the Ed Chynoweth Trophy

as tournament leading scorer. He was also named to the Memorial Cup

The Giants were chosen by the Canadian Hockey League
Canadian Hockey League
(CHL) prior to the 2006 Memorial Cup
Memorial Cup
to host the 2007 edition. They finished the season, once again, atop their division and fourth overall in the League. The season featured a goaltending controversy in which starter Dustin Slade would begin the season splitting time with emerging goalie Tyson Sexsmith. Slade, frustrated with having to relinquish starts, would leave the team in November to pursue a professional playing career.[4] With Sexsmith, who finished first in the WHL in goals against average (GAA), as their starting goalie, and a balanced offence that included the likes of Milan Lucic, Michal Repik and mid-season acquisitions Wacey Rabbit
Wacey Rabbit
and Kenndal McArdle, the Giants made their way once again to the WHL final. The series went the distance against the Medicine Hat Tigers, but the Giants lost the seventh and deciding game in double overtime, failing to win their second consecutive WHL title. However, due to their automatic bye into the Memorial Cup
Memorial Cup
as hosts, the Giants avenged their seventh game loss against the Tigers, defeating Medicine Hat 3–1 in the Cup final, capturing their first-ever Memorial Cup
Memorial Cup
title. Lucic earned the Stafford Smythe Memorial Trophy

as tournament MVP, while linemate Michal Repik led the tournament in scoring — edging Lucic by one goal — to capture the Ed Chynoweth Trophy. Defenceman

Cody Franson also joined Lucic and Repik on the tournament All-Star Team. As defending Memorial Cup

champions the following season, the Giants won the B.C. Division

for the third consecutive year and posted a franchise-record 106 points (49–15–2–6), enough for third in the League. Third-year forward Spencer Machacek, named team captain after incumbent captain Milan Lucic

would play with the Boston Bruins
Boston Bruins
of the NHL, led the team in scoring with 78 points, 14th overall in the League. On defence, Jonathon Blum, also a returnee from the Memorial Cup-winning team, finished second among League defencemen in scoring, tallying 63 points, a single-season franchise-record among defenceman. In goal, Sexsmith once again led the WHL with a stellar 1.89 GAA. The Giants' run for a third consecutive Memorial Cup
Memorial Cup
appearance, however, was cut short; after sweeping the Chilliwack Bruins
Chilliwack Bruins
in the first round, the Giants were ousted by the Spokane Chiefs

in six games. A dominant 2008–09 season established several records for the Giants. The club set a WHL record by clinching a playoff berth just 46 games into the season. The mark was previously set by the Everett Silvertips, who clinched a berth after 48 games in 2006–07.[5] Individually, overager Casey Pierro-Zabotel
Casey Pierro-Zabotel
broke the team marks for single-season assists and points, surpassing Darren Lynch and Gilbert Brule, respectively,[3][6] while second-year forward Evander Kane bettered Adam Courchaine's single-season goals total.[2] Team captain Jonathon Blum
Jonathon Blum
also surpassed Courchaine to become the franchise's all-time assists leader.[7] Finishing the season with a franchise-high 57 wins and 119 points, the Giants came within three points of their first Scotty Munro Memorial Trophy

as the top regular season team, behind the Calgary Hitmen. Awards and trophies[edit] Championships[edit]
