Drafted 15th overall in the second round of this past Sunday’s MJHL Bantam Draft, Brandon’s, Braden Keeble was happy to see his name pop up on the screen early in round two.
According to Keeble, he wasn’t expecting to see his name so soon but was certainly thrilled when he did and with where he landed.
“It was really exciting for me and my family, I was hanging out at home with family and a friend just watching the draft,” Keeble explained about his draft experience. “With Wayway being such a good organization, there’s lots of excitement, I couldn’t have asked for a better situation.”
“I was expecting to go a bit later, but I am happy to go when I did.”
The now 15-year-old prospect has played in 60 games over the last two seasons for the Bantam AAA Brandon Wheat Kings, where he has scored 15 goals and 44 assists to pace himself just below a point-per-game pace.
“I like to think of myself as a play-maker,” shared Keeble. “I can make decisions in small places and I think my skating has come along way this year too, I started to carry the play a bit.”
“I’m going to be doing a lot of training in the summer and going to the lake for some of it as well. A lot of preparing for the season,” Keeble finished.
