Swan River's Carter Cockburn will be at a WHL Training Camp next fall.

Cockburn, who plays his club hockey with the Parkland Rangers, was listed by the Everett Silvertips, just over a week ago.

The Silvertips have been a perennial powerhouse in the U.S. Division for years, including this year, as they are currently first in the division, with a 34-17-1-2 record.

"It's an absolute honour," said Cockburn. "Everett is such a great organization, and are super successful. It feels really good."

Cockburn has been tearing it up this year with the Parkland Rangers. In 41 games, the Swan River native has 52 points, 29 of which are goals. 

"I just need to keep working hard," said Cockburn. "It's been a good season so far, and now, I just need to keep pushing it, and doing everything I can to get better."

Despite the great offensive season for Cockburn, he knows what area of his game, he has to work on most.

"I have to work on my defensive game," said Cockburn. "I have to make sure I play in my own end, and the pace is definitely faster at the next level, so that's what I'm working on most."

The Silvertips main camp will be in late August 2018.
