The Prince Albert Raiders Club announced that Danyluk cleared waivers.

“He’s expressed that he’s ready to move on and start in a new direction,” Raiders general manager Bruno Campese said.

Danyluk hails from Salmon Arm, B.C. and has expressed that he’s ready to move back to his hometown and start school, Campese said.

“He’s mature and a great kid, he’s been here for a long time,” he said.

“I’m pretty sure there would have been interest for Shane if he wanted to play in the WHL,” Campese added.

Danyluk was with the Raiders for four seasons, playing 248 regular season games and scoring 77 points -- 25 goals and 52 assists. In 14 playoff games, he had 4 points -- two goals and two assists -- with six penalty minutes.

“If that’s what he wants to do, we wish him lots of success,” Campese said.
