DJ Taylor-Luke is preparing for the Manitoba Winter Games, as he'll be in Thompson next month, taking part in the men's hockey tournament.
"It means a lot," said Taylor-Luke. "I wasn't expecting to even get the chance. For me to get the opportunity, it's a great feeling."
The 14-year-old will suit up on Team West (White) in the eight-team tournament, which will be full of great competition.
"For me to play against the best of the best, it will help me elevate my game," said Taylor-Luke. "Hopefully, it'll make me a better player going forward."
DJ has been playing exceptional hockey for the Rangers this season, putting up 31 points in 23 games, 17 of which are goals.
