Prince Albert, SK – Curtis Miske will be heading south for the rest of the hockey season.
The graduating Raiders captain signed an ECHL Standard Player Contract with the ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears, an affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
“I think this is an awesome opportunity for me,” said the Beaumont, AB product. “It’s always been my dream to play pro hockey and I’m super excited to get started.”
Miske wrapped up his WHL career with regular season highs in games played (72), goals (27) and assists (37). In the post-season, he led the team with 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in seven games against the Warriors.
A second-round pick of the Spokane Chiefs in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft, Miske played in 273 WHL regular season and playoff games, totaling 68 goals and 97 assists. Since being acquired by the Raiders in January of 2017, he dressed in 107 regular season and playoff games, scoring 35 goals and recording 56 assists.
The Solar Bears have two regular season games remaining, both of which are on the road this weekend. On Friday, they’re in Atlanta to take on the Gladiators. On Saturday, they end the regular season in North Charleston, SC to take on the South Carolina Stingrays.
Orlando then moves on the post-season for the South Division semifinals against the Stingrays.
