The 15-year-old stood out at the ‘Canes training camp for all the right reasons. The Oakbank, Manitoba native had impressive speed and exceptional hands. He was one of the better play-makers in my view over camp weekend.
Here is the Hurricanes press release:
Lethbridge, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes are pleased to announce the signing of prospect Brett Davis to the Western Hockey League’s Standard Player Agreement.
At the WHL Bantam Draft in May, the Hurricanes drafted Davis in the 4th round (78th overall.) The 1999-born Centre from Oakbank, MB played with the Notre Dame Bantam Hounds of the South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League last season. He led his team with 49 points (26G, 23A) and 34 PIM’s in 36 games. His 49 points also ranked him 6th in league scoring.
Davis has also been on the radar for Team Manitoba. He was among 31 players named to the U-16 POE Development Camp roster for potential participation in the 2015 Canada Game in February in Prince George, BC. Team Manitoba staff will scout players in the early portion of the 2014-15 hockey season and will invite a short list to attend an exhibition tournament in December 2014. The final roster of 20 players will be named in late December.
