Matt Cadden plays for the Delta Hockey Academy.

Revelstoke’s Matt Cadden will be taking part in the BC Hockey U16 Cup next week — a tournament featuring the best players in his age group from across the province.

Cadden, who turned 15 last month, grew up playing minor hockey in Revelstoke before moving on to the elite Delta Hockey Academy bantam varsity team in 2014.

He’s spent the past two seasons playing defense for Delta and wracked up 22 points in 23 games this year, while captaining his squad to the division title. He was voted the top defenceman in the varsity division.

120 players divided into four teams will take part in the U16 BC Cup in Salmon Arm from Apr. 20–24. The top 40 players at the camp will be invited to take part in the U16 provincial camp in July.
