Hockey P.E.I. has set its rosters for the Atlantic Challenge Cup.
The province is sending four teams to Moncton for the Oct. 11-14 tournaments. Teams will compete in boys’ under-14 and under-15 as well as girls’ under-16 and under-18. The squads were selected following tryouts that included spring and summer camps.
“We feel very confident in how our high-performance camps were run this summer,” said Connor Cameron, Hockey P.E.I.’s technical director. “All four groups of staff did an excellent job and the players made for a lot of difficult decisions at every position.”
He said there is depth at each position for the two age groups (under-14 boys and under-16 girls) new to the high-performance program. He noted the under-15 boys’ squad is looking to improve upon last year’s silver medal finish while the under-18 girls’ squad is an exciting group that will compete with other provinces.
“Overall the excitement is high for this year’s Atlantic Challenge Cup,” he said.
