The Prince Albert Raiders have added 19-year-old forward George King, while 19-year-old Cody Paivarinta has left the team for personal reasons.

King, a Calgary native, played 18 games with the Regina Pats earlier this season before being re-assigned to the OCN Blizzard of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League earlier this month. In 18 games with the Pats, King scored five goals and one assist for six points.

Paivarinta was in his third season in the WHL, appearing in 95 games with the Raiders.

The moves were announced Monday evening, ahead of a three-game road swing that will see the Raiders take on the Kootenay Ice on Wednesday, the Calgary Hitmen on Friday, and the Edmonton Oil Kings on Saturday.
