The list of 32 players for Team Alberta U16 that will compete at the WHL Cup in October was released Tuesday.
Three from Red Deer Minor Hockey products made the grade.
Nate Danielson and Tyler MacKenzie on forward, as well as Kaiden Ellertson on the blueline.
The players were selected based on their performance throughout the season and the week-long U16 Summer Camp at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre from July 2-7.
“Once again, the entire Team Alberta staff was very impressed with the level of talent and competition at Summer Camp,” said Michael Kraichy, Manager of Team Alberta in a press release.
“Now, the final push is on for these 32 players to show us why they belong on Team Alberta.”
The shortlisted players will be scouted this fall with their club teams and 20 will earn a spot on Team Alberta at the WHL Cup in Calgary from Oct. 22-27.
