Four skaters chosen for advanced hockey teams
Taylor Bienusa, Logan Meyer, David Najjar and Trenton Wollenburg of the Wadena-Deer Creek boys' hockey team will participate in the Advanced Minnesota Hockey Spring Festival April 13-16 at the Plymouth Arena.
Bienusa, Meyer and Najjar will all play with the Advanced 17 team.
WDC head coach Dan Savoie has been chosen to serve as head coach for the Advanced 16 team, of which Wollenburg will be a part.
The Spring Festival leads up to the Boys Advanced 16 and 17 Final 54 Tournament which is slated for April 23-25 in Plymouth.
Savoie will start out with 65 kids in the festival and must cut his team to 20 by the time of the Final 54 tournament.
"It's a pretty special deal, it's just huge," Savoie said.
