THE VICTORIA ROYALS selected Michael Herringer in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.


The Victoria Royals may have a Comox Valley connection when they launch their inaugural Western Hockey League season this year.

The first-year Major Jr. A franchise selected Comox Valley Lube-X Bantam Chiefs goaltender Michael Herringer with their their ninth round (188th overall) pick at the 2011 Bantam Draft (held May 5 in Calgary).

The 6′,0″, 160-pound Herringer has previously been an invitee to the BCHL Cowichan Capitals’ prospects camp.

“The Comox Valley Minor Hockey Association is very proud of Michael’s accomplishments,” said CVMHA second vice-president Monique Wilford.

The Royals open their 12-day training camp on Aug. 20 and will play five exhibition games against B.C. Division opponents.
