La Ronge’s Cobe Delaney will be suiting up for Team Saskatchewan at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships in Whitehorse, YT in May.

Delaney played for the Beardy’s Blackhawks of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA League this past season.

The 15-year-old forward says he’s looking forward to representing his province on the national stage.

“I’m actually really excited,” said Delaney. “It will be a great experience to go play up there and play at this calibre, and play with all of my teammates.”

Delaney is a prospect of the SJHL’s La Ronge Ice Wolves. Caden Joanis, Ethan Bear, Skylar Olsen and Aaron Greyeyes are the other four prospects with the La Ronge Ice Wolves that will be joining Delaney in Whitehorse.

Delaney adds that he’s expecting the competition level to be very similar to the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League.

The National Aboriginal Hockey Championships run May 5-13 in Whitehorse.
