Two locals named to U16 BC Cup hockey team

Two local players are on the Male U16 BC Cup rosters announced Tuesday by BC Hockey.

Goalie Mike Herringer and forward Sheldon Brett will be in Kamloops from April 28 to May 1, with Herringer backstopping the Thrashers and Brett skating for the Stars. All players were selected from various zone camps held across B.C. from April 1-3.

The Male U16 BC Cup is a jamboree style tournament with players from different zones mixed together to form the teams. The Male High Performance Program added an additional 40 players to the 2011 BC Cup, bringing the total players to 200 and number of competing teams to 10.

The event offers the top male players in the BC Hockey High Performance U16 Program the unique experience of competing with the best players in their age group from across the province. The objective of the program is to enhance the overall performance of B.C. athletes, coaches and officials in high-level sporting events.

The top 68 players selected from the U16 BC Cup will advance to compete in the U16 Provincial Camp, June 29 to July 4 in Penticton.

Some notable players who have participated in this event include Brent Seabrook (Chicago Blackhawks), Brandon McMillan (Anaheim Ducks) and Brett Connolly (Prince George Cougars/Tampa Bay Lightning).
