High-performance players try to light lamp

Five local hockey players get to play for a B.C. Cup, and also gain all-important ice time playing against the province’s best.

Defenceman Coleman Doney and forwards Mathieu Jallabert, Patrick Bajkov and Jordan Topping of Nanaimo, and Trent Bell of Nanoose Bay, earned roster spots at B.C. Hockey’s U16 B.C. Cup tournament in West Kelowna April 12-15.

They qualified based on their performances at recent regional camps held around the province.

B.C. Hockey coaches and scouts will select the top players from the B.C. Cup tournament and invite them to attend U16 provincial camp in July in Salmon Arm.
