One of the Victoria Royals’ previous top scorers, Dante Hannoun, is returning to the city’s ice for the first time tonight since being traded to the Prince Albert Raiders on January 3rd.

Before being traded to the Saskatchewan team, Hannoun had been with the Royals since he was first drafted in 2013. He ended his career in Victoria with plenty of impressive stats, leaving a memorable legacy with the team.

Hannoun ties for fourth in all-time points scored for the Royals, fourth in all-time assists, fifth in games played, and seventh for goals scored.

In his 6 years with the team, Hannoun played 286 career regular games over parts of the last six seasons, amassing 248 points (98g-150a) over his career. This season, he scored 36 points (19g+17a).

Since his time with the Raiders, Hannoun has scored three goals and four assists in eight games.

A video tribute will be played for Hannoun during the game.

The Royals play the Raiders tonight at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. If you’re thinking about going, there’s still time to enter Victoria Buzz’s competition to win yourself a pair of tickets – the contest closes very shortly.
