The prospect cupboard continues to build for the Vancouver Giants with their fifth signing this offseason as they announced the signing of American-born forward Colton Langkow to a WHL Standard Player Agreement.
Vancouver selected Scottsdale, Arizona native Langkow, in the fifth round (99th overall) in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft, now giving the Giants three signed selections from that draft after the recent signing of Damian Palmieri.
Colton has an NHL Bloodline as the son of Daymond Langkow who played 1090 games in the NHL between Tampa Bay, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Calgary. He also was a star for the Tri-City Americans from 1992-96 where he had 378 points in 246 games.
His uncle Scott was a goaltender who played three seasons with the Portland Winterhawks in the early 1990s and got into 20 NHL games. Scott’s son, Beckett, signed with the Medicine Hat Tigers last week.
The younger Langkow spent this past season with the Phoenix Jr. Coyotes U15 team where he had 17 points (11G, 6A) in 19 games. He also got into 10 games with the U16 team
Langkow will be competing for a 2020-21 roster spot as a 16-year-old.
