Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers have signed forward Luke Korte to a standard WHL player agreement. Korte was selected by the Blazers in the third round, 52nd overall in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.

Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association product Luke Korte, a forward, is one of the prospects for the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.

“We are excited that Luke and his family have committed to the Kamloops Blazers organization,” commented General Manager, Matt Bardsley. “He is an exciting player to watch who uses his high hockey sense along with skating and puck skills to be an offensive threat. He has the ability to make players better,” said Bardsley.

Korte, who is from Saskatoon, spent the 2019-20 season with the West Vancouver Warriors of the Canadian Sport School Hockey League. He had 19 goals, 40 assists and 59 points in 28 games.
