|Recently 19 year-old Dan Baum from Biggar signed with the Edmonton Oilers. Dan has spent the last four years playing with the Prince George Cougars of the WHL (Western Hockey League) as an assistant captain. If Dan doesn’t make the Oilers lineup right away, he will play for the Oilers farm team, the Toronto Roadrunners. We know that Dan will find this different and more of a challenge but it will be the chance of a lifetime and a challenge that we’re sure he’s up to. - Mr. Hermannson Saskatchewan Athletes Bound for National Hockey League|
