The Prince Albert Raiders have acquired 19-year-old forward Curtis Miske from the Spokane Chiefs in exchange for a fourth round pick in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft.

The two teams announced the deal Monday afternoon.

Miske, a product of Beaumont, Alta., became the odd man out in Spokane after the Chiefs acquired forwards Rykr Cole and Riley Woods in a deal that sent Wyatt Sloboshan to the Regina Pats on Monday morning.

“With the additions of Riley Woods and Rykr Cole, we are over the WHL roster limit of 25 players and needed to move a player out,” said Scott Carter, general manager of the Chiefs, in a team release. “Curtis will get the opportunity to play a bigger role in Prince Albert this year and moving forward, while we are able to acquire an asset for our scouting staff in the draft.

“We’d like to thank Curtis for his time in Spokane and wish him the best in Prince Albert.”

The 6-foot-3, 194-pound has produced 14 points (5G-9A) over 28 games in this his third WHL campaign.

Originally a second round pick (36th) of the Chiefs at the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft, Miske has tallied 58 points (22G-36A) in 154 career WHL regular season games.

The Raiders return to action Tuesday (8 pm. Saskatchewan) when they welcome the Moose Jaw Warriors to the Art Hauser Centre in Prince Albert.
