Prince Albert, SK – The Prince Albert Raiders have loaned 2002-born defenceman Landon Kosior to the SJHL’s Melville Millionaires until December 20.
The loan is part of the WHL’s temporary transfer policy to begin the 2020-21 season. The policy granted WHL roster players permission to “continue their development by playing competitive hockey at the Junior A, Junior B and Under-18 levels,” according to a WHL press release.
Kosior, who hails from Regina, played in all 64 games for the Raiders during his rookie season in 2019-20. He had five goals and 18 assists while maintaining a plus-19 rating.
Last week, Kosior was named to NHL Central Scouting’s Preliminary Players to Watch List for the 2021 NHL Draft. He was given a “C” rating, which indicates a potential fourth-, fifth-, or sixth-round candidate for the NHL Draft.
The Millionaires open their SJHL season tonight in the first leg of a home-and-home series against the Estevan Bruins at the Horizon Credit Union Centre in Melville.
The 2020-21 WHL season will begin on Friday, January 8, 2021. For more information, click here.
