Outlook native Cole Peardon was a high pick in the 2021 WHL Bantam Draft last week, going #13 overall to the Prince Albert Raiders.
The forward currently has 19 points in 23 games with the Saskatoon Blazers AAA team, and competed with Team Saskatchewan in the most recent WHL Cup, picking up 6 points in five games at the tournament.
He will look to finish his season strong with the Blazers, but took some time earlier in the week to officially put pen-to-paper with his new WHL parent club.

Congrats to Cole on the signing, and good luck to the rest of the local players selected in last weeks draft.
