Salmon Arm’s Carson Bolduc has been selected to represent Team BC at the 2011 Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup taking place in Moose Jaw, Sask. Oct 27-30.
The tournament will feature the highest rated players in the Under 16 category representing the four western provinces. Making Team BC was the result of a competitive process for Bolduc which began in April when 600 boys from all over B.C. tried out for their respective zone camps. From that camp there were three more camps with evaluators making cuts from 200 to 64 to 34, and finally to Team BC, which consists of 20 players. These players are hoping to bring the gold home to B.C. this year. The majority of the players participating in this event were selected in the WHL Bantam draft in June 2011. Bolduc was drafted in the third round to the Prince George Cougars.
