Apr. 09, 2020


April 23rd, 2020 will go down in history as the first ever Saints Pro Hockey Academy players heard their names called during the 2020 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. Players eligible for the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft were 2005-born players residing in Alberta, B.C., Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, Yukon, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

The Seattle Thunderbirds chose a total of four Saints Pro Hockey Academy athletes in the 2020 Bantam Draft. This is just a tip of the iceberg in terms of WHL drafted athletes from the SPHA, as the 2006 and 2007 age groups feature many athletes that will also be chosen in subsequent years.
