The Prince Albert Raiders added another solid young piece to their defensive core Sunday night, acquiring defenceman Konrad Belcourt (2000) from the Kelowna Rockets in exchange for a pair of draft picks.

In return, the Raiders have sent a fifth-round and an eighth-round pick in the 2019 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft to the Rockets. The eight-round pick originally belonged to the Rockets.

Belcourt, a 5-foot-11, 157-pound product of Sherwood Park, Alta., was originally drafted by the Rockets in the fourth round, 71st overall, of the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft.

In 64 WHL regular season games with Kelowna, Belcourt has four points (1G-3A) an 23 penalty minutes. The blueliner has also appeared in eight WHL playoff games.
