Raiders Ink Second Round Picks Herold and Pearce

Prince Albert sign two more selections from Class of 2016

Prince Albert, SK – The Prince Albert Raiders are proud to announce that the team has signed defenceman Adam Herold and centre Eric Pearce to Western Hockey League Standard Players Agreements.

Herold, who was selected by the Raiders with the 35th overall pick in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft, suited up for the Balgonie Prairie Storm in the Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League (SBAAHL) during the 2015-16 season. In 29 games, the Montmartre, SK product had 11 goals and 18 assists. He added a goal in four playoff contests with the club.

“Adam is the type of character kid we love to draft,” said Raiders Director of Player Personnel Ron Gunville. “He brings a two-way game with some offence as well as being very physical. Adam has great leadership ability and could wear a letter someday as a Raider.”
