Kamloops duo makes Team B.C. short-list
Kevin Davis and Nick Chyzowski are one step closer to playing for Team B.C. at the 2012 Western Canada Under-16 Challenge Cup in Calgary in November.
The Kamloops Minor Hockey Association products made the 28-player short-list, which will be cut to 20 in October.
The Challenge Cup is a round-robin format tournament — featuring the best from B.C. Hockey, Hockey Alberta, the Saskatchewan Hockey Association and Hockey Manitoba — played every Canada Winter Games off-year.
“It is quite an accomplishment to be selected amongst this elite group of players,” said Ryan Weber, B.C.’s head coach.
“The entire management and coaching staff is excited to see these players performing for their club teams in fall and wishes them the best of luck.”
The U16 program acts as a precursor to the B.C. Hockey High Performance U17 Program, used to identify players and team personnel for provincial, regional and national teams.
