Dryden Hunt has moved one step closer to becoming a member of the prestigious male U17 Team BC.

After taking part in a camp earlier this month, the standout forward has received word he will be among the 46 players vying for 21 spots in middle July when the chosen players reconvene for a summer camp in Salmon Arm.

At stake is a shot at Team Pacific which will take part in the 2012 World Under 17 Hockey Challenge in Winnipeg next year. Of the 21 who make the cut, the top 11 will combine with the 11 best from Alberta to pull on the Team Pacific jersey.

Hunt lead the major midget Kootenay Ice in scoring last season as a rookie. The 16 year old was a member of the Nelson bantam rep squad that won a provincial championship in 2008-09.
