Local Boy Selected to Elite Hockey Team

Carter “Bean” Dane, a local student at Fremont Elementary School, has been chosen by Western Selects Hockey to participate in this summer’s Brick Invitational Tournament in Edmonton, Alberta of Canada.
Dane, 9, competes in the California Bears Youth Hockey program, which uses Pickwick Ice Rink as its home venue.
The Western Selects Brick Team is comprised of elite players from 12 western states — including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Texas and Washington — to compete in high-level birth-year tournaments.
The Edmonton Brick tournament, now in its 33rd season, takes place every summer over the July 4th weekend at the West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada, whose unique ice rink is centered in one of the largest shopping facilities in the world. It has become the most prestigious hockey event for players at the 10-and-under age level since the tournament began.
All-Star teams from all over North America attend this renowned summer event, which offers many young promising hockey players a first opportunity to compete in an international super elite AAA environment. Many players from this tournament have gone on to play in college, minor league and the NHL.
