15-year-old defenceman from Beaumont to play for Alberta's hockey team at the Canada Winter Games

It'll be one of the largest events held in Alberta since the 88 Olympics and a youngster from Beaumont will be among those taking part.

Last week 15-year-old Corson Ceulemans was selected for Team Alberta's hockey team at the 2019 Canada Winter Games.

Ceulemans started playing hockey over 10 years ago in Beaumont where he was coached by his dad Colin.

Ceulemans tells The One News the most important lessons his dad taught him about hockey.

"You got to have the will to compete, the will to work hard, get out there and achieve your goals but you've also got to have fun and those are two very important things he taught me," says Ceulemans.

When describing his style Ceulemans said, "I'd say I'm a responsible two-way defenceman who can bring offensive talent and an offensive element to the game and create plays".

Ceulemans is currently with the Okanagan Hockey Academy in Edmonton will be playing NCAA hockey next year at the University of Wisconsin.

The Canada Winter Games will be in Red Deer from February 15 to March 3 and will feature 19 sports, over 150 events and up to 3,600 athletes.

He says the Philadelphia Flyers have developed into his favorite team over the past few years and he hopes one day he can make it into the NHL.  (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
