Kootenay Midget Ice pair named all-stars
A pair of Kootenay Midget Ice forwards will be part of the BC Major Midget all-star showcase next month in Langley.
Earlier this week, the league announced that Brandon Sookro and Nolan Percival will be in the mix when the best 15 to 17-year-old players in the province get together on January 18.
Sookro is in his second year with the Ice and is the team’s captain. The South Slocan native and former Nelson Minor Hockey standout leads the Ice in scoring this season with 10 goals and eight assists.
Percival is in his rookie major midget season and the center has already made an impact. He has scored four goals and added five assists. The five-foot-seven-inch speedster grew up in the Nelson Minor Hockey system.
