Waywayseecappo Wolverines prospect, Colby Wotton returned last week from the Canada Winter Games in Red Deer with some memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.
The Foxwarren native was one of 17 Manitobans selected to play for the Province on the team consisting of the top 14 and 15-year-olds.
“It was great,” Wotton said. “You’re going against the top players from every province. It’s just a good experience to go have fun with the boys especially playing that high level of hockey.”
Colby played three games with Team Manitoba before getting injured and despite that, the youngster was able to take something out of dealing with an injury and not being able to finish the tournament.
“Just being there and hanging out with the guys, I loved it. I think being a leader came out of me after my injury there, I knew my role and I just had to play it.”
According to Wotton, his favorite part of being there was the honor of getting to represent his province.
“Just wearing the ‘M’ on my jersey and hanging out with the guys, it was a great opportunity for me and a great chance for me to showcase my skills.”
In his first season with the Midget AAA Yellowhead Chiefs, Colby has scored ten goals and eight assists in 32 games.
Wotton was selected in the first round, seventh overall by the Wolverines in the 2018 MJHL Draft.
