The season isn’t quite over yet for Brandon Wheat Kings defenceman Nick Walters.

The 18-year-old defenceman — a fourth-round pick (116th overall) by the St. Louis Blues in the 2012 NHL draft — has been assigned by St. Louis to the Peoria Rivermen, the Blues’ AHL affiliate, for the rest of the season.

In 28 games with the Wheat Kings, Walters notched nine assists and racked up 36 minutes in penalties, finishing with one goal, 19 points and 106 penalty minutes in 64 games overall between Brandon and the Everett Silvertips. Walters, a native of St. Albert, Alta., was acquired from the Silvertips along with the rights to 16-year-old forward prospect Taylor Sanheim of the Yellowhead Chiefs in exchange for 17-year-old defenceman Ayrton Nikkel at the Jan. 10 WHL trade deadline.

Walters joins a Rivermen team that sports a 30-29-4-3 record and sits 12th in the AHL’s Western Conference, but just two points out of playoff position.

Former Wheat Kings defenceman Daniel Tetrault, 33, suited up for Peoria on Sunday after being loaned to the AHL team by the ECHL’s Evansville Icemen. Tetrault was held off the scoresheet in Peoria’s 3-2 shootout win over the Toronto Marlies in his debut. Tetrault has scored 14 goals and racked up 38 points and 71 penalty minutes in 68 ECHL games this season.
