Two Summerlanders added to Steam

A hockey player and a coach from Summerland are among the new faces on the Steam Junior B hockey team for this fall.

A hockey player and a coach from Summerland are among the new faces on the Steam Junior B hockey team for this fall.

Cody Egilson, 18, will play on the team this year while Wade Parker, who has a long history in coaching, will serve as assistant coach for the year.

Egilson has played hockey for 10 years and looks forward to playing in the town where he grew up.

“To play for the Steam is going to be awesome,” he said, “I get to play for the home town.”

Because he is playing for the Steam, he will be able to remain at home.

Egilson was selected during the team’s main camp in late August.

“It was good to get back on the ice,” he said.

He has already met with the team’s coaching staff and is ready to play.

Parker, a hockey coach for 14 years, started his coaching career with the Summerland Warriors.

The team, a replacement for the Rossland Warriors, was in place for the 1999 to 2000 season.

Parker began as assistant coach and alter became head coach.

He has also coached the B.C. Best Ever U16 team.

He hopes to see the strong momentum for the last season continue during this season.

“We’re hoping we can improve on what happened last year,” he said.
