Aryn Chambers is one step closer to representing the province on the ice at the national level.
The Red Deer defenceman was among 28 players named to the Team Alberta U18 shortlist for the 2019 U18 National Championships in Morden and Winkler, Man.
Chambers, one of nine defencemen on the shortlist, impressed the coaching staff at the most recent U18 Summer Camp from July 9-14.
“The talent and character of these players always makes it tough to select a shortlist, but we are very confident in the 28 players we have selected,” said Kendall Newell, Manager of Female Hockey in a press release.
“We look forward to seeing all of these players again in September for Fall Camp.”
The players on the shortlist will be scouted throughout the fall with their club teams and the final 20-player roster will be selected after a fall camp from Sept. 27-29.
