Six Rebels Prospects Named to WHL Cup Rosters
On Wednesday, the WHL announced the rosters for the WHL Cup. The WHL Cup features the highest-rated players in the under-16 age category from the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The tournament will take place in Calgary from Wednesday, October 23 through Sunday, October 27.
The Rebels had six players named to the tournament. Hunter Mayo (Pictured above, 2nd round WHL Bantam Draft), Parker Lalonde (6th round WHL Bantam Draft) and Jhett Larson (8th round WHL Bantam Draft) are all on Team Saskatchewan. Justen Maric (5th round WHL Bantam Draft) is on Team Alberta, Jace Weir (2nd round WHL Bantam Draft) is on Team BC and Carter Anderson (3rd round WHL Bantam Draft) is on Team Manitoba.
Red Deer Rebels Assistant General Manager Shaun Sutter was pleased with the Rebels prospects getting recognized.
"We were pretty excited for all those players. They are all playing midget AAA and all playing primary roles on those teams. To have six guys make it and have it be our first six picks and to not have a first, fourth or seventh round pick in that draft, it says quite a bit, and bodes well for the future," says Sutter.
