It seems that every WHL team but one holds a Teddy Bear or a Toque toss game. . . . Nick Patterson of the Everett Herald has more right here on the one team that doesn’t take part in what has become an annual tradition with most teams.

The Prince Albert Raiders 19-year-old freshman from Eden Prairie, Minn., will be having surgery to repair a shoulder injury and recovery time is said to be as long as six months. . . . Warner, who signed with the Raiders in August, had three assists this season. He last played on Nov. 26 in Calgary. . . . He attended training camp with the NHL’s Minnesota Wild as an undrafted free agent and came out of it with a three-year contract. . . . The Raiders also are about to lose D Josh Morrissey, as he leaves this week to go to camp with Canada’s national junior team. . . . The Raiders are hopeful that D Raymond Grewal, 19, who was acquired Friday from the Prince George Cougars, will provide them with some depth on the back end.
