Even with the downtime of this season, the Waywayseecappo Wolverines continue to make moves for next season.
The Wolverines organization is happy to announce that forward Kaedin Larocque-Wolfe has signed a letter of intent for the 2021-22 season.
From Maskwacis, Alberta, Larocque-Wolfe, 17, will be joining the Wolverines after playing with the Leduc Oil Kings of the Alberta Under-18 Hockey League for the past three seasons. In the 2019-20 season, he tallied 16 points during the campaign. He also played for Team Northeast in the Alberta Cup back in the 2017-18 season.
Larocque-Wolfe will have some familiarity to the organization, knowing a few friends on the team right now.
“I’m good friends with Reagan Rabbit and I’ve talked to Colby Wolter and Conrad Phillips, and they have had nothing but great things to say about the organization,” said Larocque-Wolfe.
“I’m super excited to join the team, knowing what they have to offer, it feels like a perfect fit for me.”
Kaedin, also known as Kato, grew up in the Ermineskin Cree Nation and he says he loved where he grew up and proud of where he came from.
“I played plenty of sports, but my family was a big hockey family that definitely persuaded me to play, and I’ve loved it ever since.”
Coming to Waywayseecappo First Nation, Larocque-Wolfe says he is “beyond excited” to get a chance to play in front of the Wolverines faithful.
As for now, Larocque-Wolfe is on the outdoor rink every day waiting for the chance to play organized hockey once again.
“We might get some practices in this year, but right now just outdoor skating and working out, that’s all we can do.”
