The Vancouver Giants completed a five-game road trip Sunday night in Kennewick, Wash., with a resounding 9-1 loss to the Tri-City Americans. The Giants went 2-3-0-0 on the trip that saw GM Scott Bonner trade away three veteran players – David Musil, Nathan Burns and Austin Vetterl – and acquire centre Travis McEvoy, 18, and defenceman Mason Geertsen, 17, along with draft picks and prospects. The Giants also recalled goaltender Payton Lee, 16, from the Junior B Richmond Sockeyes on a permanent basis. Lee was the winner Saturday in Cranbrook when the Giants beat the Kootenay Ice 6-3 but he wasn't as fortunate Sunday and was hooked after allowing four goals on 18 shots by the Americans. Tyler Fuhr relieved Lee and allowed five goals on 20 shots. The Giants next see action Friday when they play host to the Portland Winterhawks in a 7:30 start at Pacific Coliseum.
