Daily Dose of the Dub: Dewar signs ELC; Raiders clinch regular season

Dewar earns NHL contract

Everett Silvertips captain Connor Dewar signed a three-year entry level contract with the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday. The 19-year-old was originally drafted by the Wild in the third round (92nd overall) of last year’s NHL Entry Draft after putting up 68 points in 68 games last season. This season while leading his team to another US Division title, he has produced 76 points (34G, 42A) in 55 games which leads the team.

Raiders clinch season title

The Prince Albert Raiders clinched the Scott Munro Memorial Trophy as the best team in the regular season with a 6-0 win over the Swift Current Broncos. The Raiders have been atop the WHL standings virtually since day one despite losing two of their top players in Ian Scott and Brett Leason for a period of time to play for Canada at the World Juniors. They’ve compiled a 51-9-2-2 record in 64 games this season.
