Brett Kulak with an armful of teddy bears at last year's teddy bear toss. This year he leads the Giants in scoring.

We're at the quarter poll of the WHL season, so now's a good time to take a look at how the Giants have stacked up against their B.C. Division rivals. Although the results haven't always been there, they're just two points back of 8th place Prince George for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with a game in hand, and statistically, they compare very favourably to the teams they're locked in a playoff race with.

Things are finally looking up for the Vancouver Giants. With the bulk of their injury woes behind them, they won back-to-back games for the first time this season, beating up a listless Kamloops Blazers squad before stunning the Eastern Conference leading Calgary Hitmen with a 4-3 overtime win. With 6 points in his last 3 games, Cain Franson appears to finally be heating up, and Brett Kulak has come alive to overtake captain Dalton Thrower for the team scoring lead.

Madison Bowey and Tyson Baillie are leading the way for the strong Kelowna Rockets.

The Vancouver Giants haven't played a game since ending their disasterous eastern road trip without a win, so instead we'll turn our attention this week toward the Okanagan and what is probably the B.C. Division's top team: the Kelowna Rockets. Led by offensive contributions from young guns Tyson Baillie, Nick Merkley and Riley Stadel, the Rockets are off to a furious 6-1-0-2 start. They trail only the Victoria Royals for the B.C. Division lead, but the Royals have played four more games.

For a closer look at Kelowna's early season success, read past the jump.
