Prince Albert SK – The Prince Albert Raiders announced that they have acquired a fourth round draft pick and a fifth round draft pick in the 2013 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft from the Moose Jaw Warriors, in exchange for 19-year-old defenceman Tyler Vanscourt.

The Raiders acquired Vanscourt on September 15th in a trade that sent 18-year-old goaltender Luke Lee-Knight to the Spokane Chiefs. In 26 games this season, the Corona, California native scored 7 goals and added 10 assists while collecting 25 penalty minutes.

“With four 1992 born defenceman on our roster, this move allows us to accumulate draft picks and provides more opportunity for the progression of Josh Morrissey and Sawyer Lange”, said Raiders General Manager Bruno Campese. “We would like to thank Tyler for his contributions to our organization during his time as a Raider, and wish him all the best in Moose Jaw.”
