Nick Ross (born February 10, 1989 in Edmonton, Alberta) is a Canadian major junior ice hockey defenceman for the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League (WHL). He was drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes with the 30th pick of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career

Ross began his major junior career in the WHL with the Regina Pats in 2004–05, appearing in 10 games. After a 31-point campaigin with the Pats in 2006–07, Ross was drafted 30th overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Phoenix Coyotes. The next season, back in the WHL, he was traded from the Pats to the Kamloops Blazers on January 5, 2008, along with Spencer Fraipont and a fourth-round bantam draft pick, in exchange for Victor Bartley and Ryan Bender. Upon being eliminated from the 2008 WHL playoffs with the Blazers, the Coyotes assigned Ross to the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League (AHL) for the remaining 4 games of the 2007–08 AHL season. Returning to the Blazers the following season, in 2008–09, Ross was traded to the Vancouver Giants just before the January 10, 2009 trade deadline, along with Alex Rodgers in exchange for Curtis Kulchar and three bantam draft picks. He finished the season with an accumulated 43 points between the two teams. In the subsequent 2009 playoffs, after sweeping the Prince George Cougars, the Giants were pushed to a seventh game against the Spokane Chiefs in the second round where Ross scored the series-clinching goal in overtime – a point shot that deflected off a Chiefs defenceman.
