Scott’s story is one of perseverance, going undrafted in the WHL this past season to being named the BC Hockey Leagues Player U16AAA Player of the Year.
Scott racked up 28 goals and 29 assists with the Cariboo Cougars.
“It’s a really huge honour to be recognized as Player of the Year,” said Scott. “I had so much help from my coaches and teammates, I‘m really proud of this. We have a great program up north with the four teams that focuses on developing everyone.”
Scott captained the top ranked Cougars this season and earned BC Hockey’s Player of the Month for November after putting up 39 points in just 14 games.
“We had an awesome season on and off the ice,” said the Cougars forward. “We bonded really well together and I think that led to success on the ice.”
Scott will be able to take his love for the game to the next level, having the opportunity to try out for the Cariboo Cougars U18AAA team next season while attending the evaluation process for the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL, having been listed by the team this past season.
“There’s nothing I don’t love about hockey, the competitiveness, the teamwork, that adrenaline rush you get after a big play or a big goal. It’s the whole experience,” he added.
