The AAA Bantam Showcase finished this past weekend

The AAA Bantam Showcase finished this past weekend at the MTS Iceplex.  Thirteen teams from Manitoba played over three days to parents, fans and scouts.  Many players stood out and gave hope to this year’s crop.  Games were competitive and hard fought and overall it was an enjoyable weekend for anyone that came.

This is the year of the growing goaltender.  The exception is the Winnipeg Hawks’ goaltender Owen Savoie. Owen who already stands 6’2 plays a very sound game with a quiet upper body and good fast legs.  He moves fluidly from post to post and fights to see through screens.   

Size may not stop the output of Austin Peters on the Winnipeg Warriors.  He stood out with his cycling and his high puck possession stats along with his scoring touch.  Another small man, Nicholas Gruberman of the Monarchs, scored against Brandon with a seeing eye shot to the top corner. 

This year already has 20 players destined to be drafted to the WHL draft.  By year’s end another 10-15 will be identified to fit in also.  This is a year where we want to see more.  The players that direct the flow of play and show character will be watched more closely.  Not always are the top scorers taken the highest, the players that bring their own flare, that look like they enjoy themselves and who communicate well with their teammates and coaches will have a chance. 

Good luck to all the players this season no matter where you land there are many options to continue hockey as you grow older and it’s persistence that keeps you in the game.
