Dauphin, Canada

Russell's Wyatt Tweet is heading to the Manitoba Winter Games when they kick off in early March.

"It means a lot," said Tweet.  "I'm honoured to be selected to play with the best of the best."

Wyatt will suit up on Team West (White) at the games, that are being played in Thompson.

"I'm expecting to be really challenged, because I'm playing with, and against, the best players in the province," said Tweet.  "If we move the puck well, and don't be selfish, we should be able to come out on top."

The men's hockey tournament is March 4-7, at the C. A. Nesbitt Arena.

"I'm really looking forward to meeting new people, and making new relationships," said Tweet.  "And, going out there and showing my stuff on the ice."

Wyatt currently has 27 points in 32 games, this year, with the Bantam Parkland Rangers.
