Rookie in name, veteran in game.

Steering the ship from one league and one province to another has proven to be a soft landing for first-year Okotoks Oilers forward Carter Huber – one of the most consistent presences on the youngest team in the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

“We almost don’t even look at him as a rookie,” said Oilers head coach James Poole. “He went over to B.C. and played in that Junior B league and I think that helped with his maturity level and you can see it in his game.

“Great work ethic on and off the ice, he’s respected not just by the rookies, but by the veterans. He works hard in the gym, he’s great in the community and just an outstanding kid.”
