Victoria, BC –
The Victoria Royals today announced that the team has traded goaltender Jared Rathjen (1994) to the Vancouver Giants in exchange for their eighth round selection in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.

Victoria sends Rathjen to Vancouver after the Prince George, BC native posted a 2.92 goals against average and a .912 save percentage in four games played for the Royals this season. Rathjen was reassigned to the Whitecourt Wolverines of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) by Victoria last November.

The 6-1, 180 lb netminder spent the 2011-12 season with the Royals. In 22 games played, Rathjen held a record of 3-9-2-0 as a rookie in the WHL.

Victoria now returns home to take on the Tri-City Americans for a two-game home stand beginning Friday, January 4th and concluding Saturday, January 5th. Puck drop for each game is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
