The Kelowna Rockets have acquired 1995 born goaltender Jackson Whistle from the Vancouver Giants in exchange for a third round bantam draft pick in 2014..

A Kelowna native, Whistle will join the Rockets in Maple Ridge tonight and will backup Rockets starter Jordon Cooke as the Rockets take on Victoria.

The Rockets have also re-assigned goaltender Cameron Barnes to Canmore in the AJHL.

Whistle, a 6-foot-1, 180 pound netminder, played in 21 games last season with the Giants.
