Prince Albert, SK – The Prince Albert Raiders are pleased to announce the signing of 2002-born forward Evan Herman to a WHL Standard Player Agreement.
Herman was selected in the third round of the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft after scoring 19 goals and adding 18 assists with Rink Hockey Academy Bantam Prep along current Raider Jakob Brook.
Hailing from The Pas, MB, Herman has 13 goals and 13 assists in 30 games with Rink Hockey Academy Prep of the CSSHL this season. He also scored five goals and added two assists in seven games played with the MJHL’s OCN Blizzard this year.
“Evan will quickly become a fan-favourite in Prince Albert,” said Raiders General Manager Curtis Hunt. “He’s a tenacious player with great speed, has skill, and plays the game with an edge.”
Herman, listed at 5’9 and 143 lbs, is the sixth member of the Raiders’ 2017 WHL Bantam Draft to sign with the team, joining current Raiders Brook, Kaiden Guhle, and Ozzy Wiesblatt, and prospects Braydon Clark and Cohner Saleski.
