It was announced Thursday afternoon that Americans goaltender Nicholas Sanders is headed to Prince Albert, while the Am's will receive a 20-year-old net minder in return. (image from information released by Americans-Doug Love photo).

Sanders, 18, has been sharing the net with Beck Warm, as they fill in for Evan Sarthou who's recovering from a knee injury.

Coming to Tri-Cities is Rylan Parenteau. He's a 2nd Team all WHL player from 2015, and played 55 games for the Raiders last season, compiling a .913 save percentage last year.

The Ams also placed 20-year-old defenseman Jeff Rayman on waivers, effective today. He spent two years with Spokane before coming to Tri-City, but had seen limited action. The Americans, as do rest of teams in WHL, can only keep 3 overage, or 20-year-olds, on the roster. Rayman was waived to make room for Parenteau.
