The Regina Pats Hockey Club has announced they have acquired 19-year-old forward Caiden Daley from the Brandon Wheat Kings in exchange for 19-year-old forward Duncan Pierce.
Daley (6’1, 178) was drafted in the first round, 22nd overall, by the Wheat Kings in 2015. He has appeared in 212 WHL games, scoring 18 goals and 56 points. He has two assists in 10 games so far this year.
“We are excited to add Caiden to our forward group,” said Pats VP of Hockey Operations and General Manager John Paddock. “He is a good skater with some offensive ability, and he will add to the depth of our team.”
Daley, from Winnipeg, represented Team Canada at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in 2016-17, and won a Manitoba Midget Hockey League Championship with the Winnipeg Wild in 2016.
Pierce, also from Winnipeg, was listed by the Pats in 2015 and has played in 94 career WHL games. The 19-year-old has scored eight goals and 24 points in his career and has two assists in 10 games this season.
“We wish Duncan all the best in Brandon,” added Paddock. “He has been a solid citizen for our organization and contributed in many ways, we wish him the best.”
The Pats are back in action on Friday in Prince Albert against the Raiders at 7 p.m. on 620 CKRM. Next home game is Sunday, November 3 at 4 p.m. at the Brandt Centre against the Red Deer Rebels. Tickets are available at reginapats.com, the Brandt Centre Box Office and at any Regina Safeway Location.
