CALGARY, AB -- Brett Kulak and the Vancouver Giant's season came to a close on Wednesday night when the Portland Winterhawks knocked them out of the WHL playoffs in the quarter-finals.
The Winterhawks, who swept the Giants, picked up a 6-1 win in Vancouver on Wednesday evening.
Kulak, who was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the fourth round of the 2012 NHL Draft, led the Giants in scoring in the postseason with a goal and three points in four games.
The defenceman finished off the regular season with 60 points (14 goals, 46 assists) in 69 games. He was fourth in scoring amongst all Giants skaters and led all Vancouver defencemen in scoring.
Kulak has spent the past three seasons in Vancouver, where he has amassed 35 goals and 128 points in 216 regular season games. The 20-year-old has suited up for 10 playoff games, registering one goal and seven points in those outings.
In the 2012-13 campaign, the rearguard dressed for four games with the Abbotsford Heat while he was on an Amateur Try-Out (ATO) agreement.
The Stony Plain, AB native signed a three-year entry level deal with the Flames on Mar. 18.
