Grandview's Isaiah Weedon has been battling all season long to make the Parkland Rangers full roster, and the 16-year-old can now say he's done it.
Weedon began the season as an AP player which allowed him a certain amount of games, but now, Weedon can play unlimited games.
"It feels great," said Weedon. "I worked hard all season just to prove myself to everyone. Now, I get to prove myself even more, which is a great feeling."
Weedon will hit the ice for the first time as a full-time Ranger when the team takes on the Winnipeg Wild.
"I just need to keep working hard," said Weedon. "I just have to do what I gotta do, and things will work out."
Weedon suited up in 12 games so far for the Rangers this season and put up two points (1G, 1A).
"It's been fun so far," said Weedon. "Being around the guys, and being able to develop. It's definitely a place I want to be for a couple years."
The two-game set with the Wild begins tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 p.m. at the Swan River Centennial Arena, and then the teams rematch at the same time on Sunday.
