Red Deer recruits Butler, Oil Capitals pick up pair

Tanner Butler of Souris is headed to Red Deer College.

Butler has committed to play hockey for the RDC Kings of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference after graduating from the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Dauphin Kings this spring.

Butler was named the MJHL’s top defenceman this season, picking up 35 points in 58 regular-season games and helping the Kings reach of the RBC Cup national Junior A championship.

Butler had four goals and an assist in six Western Canada Cup games as the Kings earned their spot at nationals. He added two goals and two assists in five RBC Cup games.

Butler will join a pair of his former Dauphin teammates, Jeff Archibald and Shamus Graham, in Red Deer. He’s the third Dauphin player this week to land at a post-secondary school, following Brett Wold, who will play for the NCAA Division III Utica College Pioneers, and Ryan Cooper, who will also go the Div. III route, with the St. Scholastica Saints.

VIRDEN MAKES MOVES

The MJHL’s Virden Oil Capitals have added one player through a trade and signed another.

The Oil Capitals acquired former Dauphin defenceman Brett Sharples from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Nipawin Hawks for future considerations on Friday. The Hawks had picked up Sharples from the Kings earlier in the week. At 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, Sharples had two goals, nine assists and 91 penalty minutes in 56 games with the Kings this season.

Virden’s other newcomer is forward Nick Prouty, 18, who signed with the Oil Capitals after leading the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League’s Kenora Thistles with 33 points and 90 penalty minutes in 41 games this season.
