Raiders Agree to Terms with Vojtech Budik

Prince Albert, SK – The Prince Albert Raiders are pleased to announce that the team has signed import defenceman Vojtech [VOY-ta] Budik to a Western Hockey League Standard Players Agreement.

The Raiders selected the six-foot-one, 190-pound rearguard with the 17th overall pick in the annual draft, which includes teams from the Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, and Western Hockey League.

The Pardubice, Czech Republic native played the 2014-15 season split between HC Pardubice’s Under-18 and Under-20 teams. With the U-18s, Budik scored three goals and added nine assists for 12 points in 12 games. At the U-20 level, he recorded five assists in 19 games.
