Sanderson selected for Western Regional Camp

Pierre (SD) – Oahe Hockey Association skater Carter Sanderson is one of four South Dakota hockey players selected to attend the Western Regional High Performance Player Development Camp in Dallas, Texas, July 20-24, 2021.

The Western Regional was created by three USA Hockey districts – the Northern Plains, Pacific, and Rocky Mountain – to feature “the most elite hockey players in the participating districts.”

Three of Sanderson’s teammates from the 14U South Dakota National Team, Carson Myhre and Jaxon Danielson of Aberdeen and Colton Merchen of Rapid City, also qualified.

Sanderson speaks about this opportunity…

To qualify, Sanderson competed in a three-day tryout in Grand Forks against more than 80 skaters from across the Northern Plains District, which includes South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming.

Sanderson had an excellent 2020-2021 season for the Oahe Capitals, scoring 40 goals and notching 20 assists in 21 games at the Bantam A level.

Sanderson says he’s appreciative of what the Oahe hockey association does for players…
