Dropping the gloves with Darian Skeoch

Vancouver Giants defenceman Darian Skeoch is getting set for this second season in Langley.

Skeoch was perhaps the team’s steadiest defenceman in 2016/17 before his season was cut short by injury.

The six-foot-four, 216-pound right shot defenceman had one goal and 10 points plus 46 penalty minutes in 27 games.

The 20-year-old from New Liskeard, Ont. spent a few minutes chatting with Times sports reporter Gary Ahuja about both hockey and his interests off the ice.
