It is a homecoming of sorts for Brendan Rouse as he joined the Vancouver Giants.

Rouse, a forward from Langley — he played in the Langley Minor Hockey Association — was picked up by the Giants off waivers  from the Seattle Thunderbirds on Thursday (Jan. 10).

He made his Giants debut on Saturday, contributing one assist in a 4-3 overtime victory over the visiting Kelowna Rockets at the Pacific Coliseum.

The six-foot-one 178-pound forward had six goals and 23 assists in 42 games for Seattle prior to last week’s move.

He was released after the T-Birds picked up another 20-year-old, putting them over the league limit of three per team.

Rouse, who turns 21 on Jan. 28, is in his final season of junior eligibility.

He has 28 goals and 107 points in 230 career WHL games.

Rouse was a fifth-round pick in the 2007 WHL bantam draft and he played six games with the Brandon Wheat Kings in his rookie season before he was traded to Seattle.
