Four Red Deer players are among eight Central Alberta skaters selected to compete in the Hockey Alberta ATB Peewee Prospects Cup May 7-10 at Olds.

Eight teams — two selected from players attending each of four regional camps held April 17-19 — will compete in the tournament. Twenty athletes comprise each roster, along with volunteers serving as head coach, assistant coaches, coach mentor, trainer, and director of operations.

Forward Silas Buijs will suit up with Team South Black, while defencemen Alex Litster and Kayden Robinson along with forward Noah Danielson are on the Team South Yellow roster.

Meanwhile, forward Kayde Budgell of Bentley and defenceman Ronan Seeley will skate with South Black and forwards Brett Meerman of Blackfalds and Wyatt Fluet of Sundre are with South Yellow.

Cara Corsiatto of Olds is the director of operations with South Yellow — with Rick Polutnik serving as the coach mentor — and Elwin Weins of Innisfail is the director of operations for South Black.

The ATB Peewee Prospects Cup is a new component of the Team Alberta program. This year’s event is for male athletes born in 2002.

“Last weekend’s zone camps showed that Alberta has an immense amount of young hockey talent across the province,” said Dustin Moore, coordinator for Team Alberta. “We are pleased these athletes will be able to compete against each other, but also learn from one another and a very knowledgeable group of coaches, as they begin their journey through the Team Alberta program.”
