Noah Gregor will spend one more season in the Western Hockey League.
The 6-foot-0, 188-pound product of Beaumont, Alta. was returned to the Prince Albert Raiders from the San Jose Barracuda Tuesday, set for his final season in the WHL. An off-season trade sent Gregor back to the East Division after playing 164 WHL regular season games for the Moose Jaw Warriors since 2014.
Gregor was originally selected by the Royals in the third round, 55th overall, of the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. He was then dealt to the Moose Jaw Warriors, where he made his debut in the 2014-15 season.
The forward was dealt back to the Royals and Vancouver Island during the 2017-18 WHL regular season. In 60 games, split evenly between the Warriors and Royals, Gregor tallied 65 points (29G-36A), including 10 power-play goals, and five game-winning goals. In 11 WHL playoff games with the Royals this season, Gregor tallied 12 points (6G-6A), including two power-play goals and one game-winning goal as the Royals made it Round Two before falling to the Tri-City Americans.
Gregor was originally selected by the Sharks in the fourth round, 111th overall, in the 2016 NHL Draft.
Overall, Gregor has played in 194 WHL regular season games, tallying 205 points (86G-119A), including 32 power-play goals, 1 short-handed goal and 16 game-winning goals. In 28 career WHL playoff games, Gregor has 23 points (11G-12A), including two power-play goals and two game-winning goals.
In April, Gregor signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Sharks.
