BC Hockey has announced the 20-players selected for the BC Male U16 team at the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, which is being held February 16-22, 2019.

Of the 20 players selected, 12 are currently playing in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League. The other eight spent the 2017-18 season in the CSSHL, but are playing in the BC Major Midget League this season.

Burnaby Winter Club Academy leads the group with six players selected, including a goalie, a d-man and four forwards. Delta Academy was next with three, Yale Academy two and Shawnigan Lake with one. Thompson and North Island lead the BCMML group, each with two players selected (see list below).

The team selection process started at the U16 BC Cup games held in Salmon Arm last spring. Sixty players were selected out of the Cup event to attend Provincial summer camp (three teams), with the round three selects invited to the December camp.

Team BC kicks off the 2019 Canada Winter Games on February 16, 2019 against Manitoba.

Team BC will also face Saskatchewan and Alberta in preliminary play prior to the quarterfinals that start on February 20, 2019.

Semi-final action will be played on February 21, 2019 and the medal games take place on February 22, 2019.

Hockey will be played at both the Kinex Arena and the Centrium in Red Deer.

British Columbia has won the gold medal in men’s hockey on two occasions:

  • 1979 – McCreary, Manitoba
  • 2011 – Halifax, Nova Scotia

BC finished fifth at the last Canada Winter Games held in Prince George, BC in 2015.
