Lac La Ronge Indian Band member Trever Sanderson has signed a letter of intent with the La Ronge Ice Wolves of the SJHL.

“I feel like I’m a power forward, I like to get into the dirty areas and get the puck so I can feed my teammates for the goal,” said Sanderson. “It’s very exciting. I’ve always wanted to play for the Wolves, considering I’m from there and watched them growing up.”

The 2003-born forward has spent time with the Pacific Coast Academy U18 Prep team this season. Sanderson suited up for the Beardy’s Blackhawks in the Saskatchewan U18 AAA ranks during the 2019-20 campaign.

“For these local kids, I think it’s a dream come true to play in front of your hometown, it’s great for the organization, it’s great for the community,” said Ice Wolves Head Coach and GM Kevin Kaminksi.

“I guess he’s (Sanderson) got some unbelievable wheels – very, very fast. He plays hard-nosed, gritty. That’s a style that we’re trying to mold there, but also, he can chip in offensively.”

Meanwhile, the SJHL season is still on pause following tighter COVID-19 measures that were introduced by the provincial government in November.
