RANGERS PLAYER REVEAL: Carter Cockburn

After a stellar season last year, the Parkland Rangers will welcome back Carter Cockburn to the Midget AAA team this year.

"It's a nice feeling to be on the team again," said Cockburn. "I've always wanted to play the highest level of hockey possible, and this is what I'm doing right now, so it's good."

Last year, Cockburn put up 30 points in the regular season in 44 games for the Rangers, 16 of which were goals and six were on the powerplay.

Before the Rangers season, Cockburn took part in the Swan Valley Stampeders training camp.

"Junior is a higher level then Midget obviously," said Cockburn. "So I was able to get my feet going. It really helped me a lot, and now I know what I have to do coming into this year."

Heading into this year, Cockburn has high praise for the Rangers. 

"I think we have a really good team," said Cockburn. "I just want to go as far as possible with this team, and see what happens."

Cockburn notes a NCAA scholarship is something he would like to obtain in the future.
