The Prince Albert Raiders have started out the trade deadline day with a bang.

Despite currently being in last place, the Raiders added 19-year-old Jordy Stallard from the Calgary Hitmen and seventh rounder in 2017 in exchange for 18-year-old Luke Coleman and a fourth rounder in 2018. That fourth round pick was originally acquired from the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Trey Fix-Wolansky deal.

Stallard has eight goals and 27 points in 32 games this year. That is immediately second on the Raiders in scoring behind only Simon Stransky.

Coleman had a solid start to the season with five goals in his first 14 games, but after recovering from an upper-body injury, Coleman finished his Raider tenure with two goals and two assists in his last 25 games.

Stallard’s acquisition is the Raiders’ 16th trade this season. They also acquired Brayden Pachal from the Victoria Royals on Monday for Prince Albert product Loch Morrison.

The Raiders are set to face off against Stallard’s former team, the Calgary Hitmen, on Wednesday at the Art Hauser Centre.
