The Victoria Royals and Red Deer Rebels have agreed on a deal that sees defenceman Jacob Herauf moving to the Island in exchange for three Western Hockey League Bantam Draft selections.

In return for Herauf, the Rebels will receive a selection in the second round of the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft, a sixth-round selection in the 2021 draft and a conditional selection in the 2022 draft.


Herauf, a 6-foot, 190-pound product of Sherwood Park, Alta. was originally selected by the Rebels 16th overall, at the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft. In the 2018-19 WHL Regular Season, Herauf appeared in 66 games, posting 16 points (1G-15A). Overall, the 19-year-old Herauf has registered 186 WHL regular season and playoff games with the Rebels, recording 40 points (3G-37A).

Prior to the start of the 2018-19 WHL season, Herauf attended the Pittsburgh Penguins’ training camp as an undrafted invite.

The Rebels will resume pre-season action when they host the Medicine Hat Tigers on Friday, September 13 (7 p.m. MT) at the Westerner Park Centrium in Red Deer, Alta. After their five pre-season games, Victoria sits at a 1-4-0-0 record and will kick off their WHL Regular Season campaign on Saturday, September 21 (7:05 p.m. PT) when they take on the Everett Silvertips at Angel Of The Winds Arena in Everett, Wash.
