Spending the past full season with the Prince Albert Raiders – following a mid-season trade from Calgary in the 2016-17 season, Stallard thrived in the green and black. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound centerman put together 44 goals and 91 points in 72 games for the Raiders this past season, giving the Moose no choice but to sign the 20-year-old.
Stallard finished the WHL season 14th in league scoring and dressed in all games for Prince Albert. Although coming up short, the Raiders relied on Stallard heavily in the first round of the WHL Playoffs, as the veteran forward put up three goals and eight points in seven games – ultimately falling to Jett Woo, Brett Howden, Kale Clague and the Moose Jaw Warriors in the opening round.
The Manitoba Moose will close out their season on the road with stops in Cleveland (April 12th & 13th) and Chicago (April 15th), before beginning the AHL’s Calder Cup Playoffs on April 19th.
