Local Players Attend Sask First Male Under-15
Top 80 Tournament

by Shanine Sealey

Three local hockey players; Easton Woytiuk, Cohen Klassen, and Broden Wotherspoon travelled to Balgonie, SK this past weekend to compete in the Sask First Male U15 Top 80 Tournament that took place from February 17-19. Klassen and Wotherspoon were on Team 3 (gold) and Woytiuk was on Team 4 (red), with the red team winning the B Final against the gold team.

The tournament, which takes place each year offers an opportunity for players from across the province to showcase their skills and compete against the best of the best, with scouts from various leagues in attendance, including the WHL, who were scouting players for the 223 WHL Prospects Draft. Players that competed in the tournament first participated in evaluations during the Sask First Under-15 Top 160 that was held in December, where they were narrowed down to a pool of 80 players.

The top 80 players were divided into four teams and competed in a round-robin competition, with finals taking place on Sunday morning.

Following the tournament, the top 25-32 players will be chosen to attend Summer and Fall camps before the final 20 athletes will be selected to represent Saskatchewan at the 2023 WHL Cup.
