RED DEER – Twenty male athletes from Alberta have been selected to represent their province at the 2023 Canada Winter Games.
Two goaltenders, six defence, and 12 forwards have been named to the team that will travel to Prince Edward Island in February participate in the Games which run February 18-March 5.
Players were selected to the roster based on their overall play throughout the Team Alberta scouting process, past Team Alberta programs, and at the U16 Summer Camp in Red Deer, July 4-10. Eighty players were invited to Red Deer, and worked through high intensity on-ice sessions, as well as off-ice training and classroom sessions. From summer camp, thirty-three players were placed on a shortlist, and scouted with their club teams throughout the fall.
“Our staff has worked incredibly hard throughout this process, and we are thrilled to announce our final roster,” said Serge Lajoie, Head Coach of Team Alberta U16 Male. “We are confident in the players we have chosen, and are excited to begin our preparations for the competition in February.”
The Hockey competition will be split between Credit Union Place in Summerside and the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown, PEI.
