Two Everett prospects headed to U-16s

The rosters for the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup, which features the top 15-year-old players in the WHL’s Canadian territory, were announced today and two Everett prospects will be representing their provinces Nov. 1-4 in Calgary. Defenseman Kevin Davis, Everett’s first-round pick in this year’s bantam draft, will represent British Columbia, and listed goaltender Mario Petit will suit up for Manitoba.

This is a nice honor for Davis and Petit, particularly Petit since there are few players who weren’t selected in the bantam draft who make these teams. For example, all 20 members of Team Saskatchewan were selected by WHL teams in May.

However, with just two representatives the Tips will be lightly represented at the tournament. A total of 80 players will take part, and with 22 WHL teams the average would typically be about four players per team. Granted, Everett went pretty heavy toward Americans in this year’s bantam draft, so that skews things a bit. But Everett had two third rounders — goaltender Nik Amundrud from Saskatchewan and forward Matt Fonteyne from Alberta, who didn’t make the cut. Huh.
