The Victoria Royals announced that the club has acquired a seventh round pick in the 2016 Western Hockey League bantam draft from the Lethbridge Hurricanes in exchange for 18-year-old goaltender Jayden Sittler.

Victoria will close out their seven game homestand with a two-game series against BC Division rivals the Prince George Cougars tomorrow and Saturday. Puck drop is set for 7:05 p.m. for all three games.
