The Victoria Royals have added to their blueline, trading for 19-year-old defenceman Damon Agyeman in a deal with the Medicine Hat Tigers.

The Royals also receive a ninth round selection in the 2023 WHL Prospects Draft, while the Tigers add a conditional WHL Prospects Draft selection in 2023.

β€œDamon is a strong and athletic defenceman who defends well and moves the puck with velocity,” said Victoria general manager and head coach Dan Price. β€œWe look forward to welcoming him to the Royals.”

Agyeman, a product of Cochrane, Alta., has played in 21 games over the course of three seasons with Medicine Hat, registering two points (1G-1A).

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound blueliner scored his first WHL goal January 11, 2020. Agyeman was signed by the Tigers to a standard player agreement in March of 2018.
