Rosalind McKinney filled out a contest form from BC Hockey Association for ‘Every Kids Dream’ on behalf of her son Daunte. Daunte was selected to be a part of this exciting event with the Vancouver Canucks. He went Friday January 30, 2015.
Successful entry on behalf of Daunte:
Daunte Mckinney is 10 years old. His passion is hockey. He has been playing hockey for four years now. He is on his second year playing on the Atom Development Rep Team called the North Island Eagles. When Daunte got the call from from the Head Coach to tryout for the Eagles in the late summer of 2012 he was so excited. Daunte was so happy when he made the team and when he first put the Eagle jersey on, it was like he was drafted into the NHL – he was so proud. He is also so proud to represent Alert Bay. Daunte is the only child from Alert Bay that plays Rep Hockey. He travels to Port McNeil, Port Alice and Port Hardy every Tuesday and Thursday for practices. He gets back home on the last ferry on those nights. The team travels as far as Victoria for league games. His dream is to play in the NHL. It is very costly but this is his dream. Daunte also would like to Thank the community of Alert Bay for all of there ongoing support.
