Lethbridge, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes announced Tuesday that they have traded 18-year-old Forward Craig Leverton to the Prince Albert Raiders in exchange for 17-year-old Left Winger Spencer Meyer.

Lethbridge Hurricanes General Manager Brad Robson calls Craig “a dedicated worker, who has a positive attitude and works hard every shift. Craig is also very community oriented and takes his role as a hockey player and member of the community seriously. We thank Craig for all he’s done in his time with the Hurricanes and we wish him success in his new role with the Raiders.”
