Sturgeon Sting Pee Wee AA player and Home Game Captain Kaden Kinjerski is off to the Alberta Winter Games in Fort McMurray in February. Both Kinjerski and co-captain Riley Enns from the Gibbons area made the coveted team.
Kinjerski, 12, has been playing hockey for the past seven years and was pleased to have learned he made the team after trying out for it.
“I felt on cloud 9,” he said. “There is really no explanation of happy I was and still am.”
Kinjerski said he is looking forward to the whole experience of meeting new people and playing with the best kids in his zone.
On the road ahead, the 12-year-old is hoping to make hockey a significant part of his future.
“I want to be able to play hockey in a great school and earn an education while playing the game I love,” Kinjerski said.
