Apparently these four can't go anywhere without eachother.
And for Ethan Cap, Liam Kindree, Jack Shepard and Jack Leppard, they wouldn't have it any other way.
After winning the western bantam championship last year with the bantam A1 team at the North Shore Winter Club, (the 2nd straight for Leppard and Shepard), the 3 forwards and 1 defenseman cracked the squad of the hometown Vancouver North West Giants and impressed Team BC staff enough to earn another spot on the Western Branch Challenge Cup U16 squad.
I grabbed the guys on a rare day off to talk about the upcoming experience and how the lessons learned at NSWC and with the Giants will hopefully translate into a gold medal.
(This was recorded a couple weeks before the tournament - did they win?)
