Prince Albert SK- Former Prince Albert Raider, and current University of Saskatchewan Huskie, Craig McCallum addressed students at Carlton High School Tuesday afternoon prior to taking part in the Centennial Walk celebrating 100 years of Huskie Athletics.

The former Raider was selected to speak to the nearly 1,500 students and faculty in the Carlton gymnasium on behalf of Huskie athletes as part of the Centennial Walk at Carlton High School. McCallum also spent time prior to the ceremony in a class sharing his stories with students, and answering questions they had, on topics ranging from best hockey moments to his life lessons and future goals.

The Canoe Lake product is in his second year with the University of Saskatchewan, after winning Male Athlete Rookie of the Year last season. He finished his 3-year Western Hockey League career with the Prince Albert Raiders in the 2009-2010 campaign, appearing in all 72 games while recording 27 goals and 45 assists for a team-leading 72 points.

Huskie Athletics is celebrating their 100th anniversary by launching a province wide initiative to host centennial walks in 100 communities across Saskatchewan, with Prince Albert chosen as the first location for the event.
