REGINA PAST ACQUIRE
DEFENCEMAN - KAD PILTON
September 13, 2012
Pilton dressed for 43 games with the Royals last season totaling five goals and eight assists while adding 52 penalty minutes in 2011-12.
A second round selection (25th overall) in the 2009 Bantam Draft, Pilton brings considerable size to the Pats lineup standing 6’5” and tipping the scales at 186 pounds.
“Kade is a big, mobile defenceman that comes to our program with experience and fits into an age group we are trying to build around,” says General Manger Chad Lang. “He’s a solid one-on-one defender who adds grit to our back end and features some offensive upside.”
The Pats take to the ice in their next pre-season action tomorrow night at the Brandt Centre against the Saskatoon Blades.
