The Prince Albert Raiders added a new defenceman to their roster today.

The Raiders snapped up 1999-born Sergei Sapego through import waivers from the Tri-City Americans, who had selected him in the second round of the WHL draft. Born in Vitebsk, Belarus, the 6’0”, 170-lb Sapego had two assists in three games this season with the Americans. Sapego also represented Belarus at the 2017 IIHF U18 World Championship back in April, managing a goal and an assist over seven games.

Raiders general manager Curtis Hunt said Sapego is a versatile defenceman.

“He has good mobility and a good hockey sense,” Hunt said. “We expect him in Prince Albert tomorrow.”

The team also re-assigned defender Tyler Lowe to the Drumheller Dragons in the AJHL.

The Prince Albert Raiders will be back in action Friday evening, when they take on the Regina Pats at the Art Hauser Centre.
