Caden Brown and Ethan Semeniuk win WHL Challenge Cup

Two former Fort St. John minor hockey players — Caden Brown and Ethan Semeniuk — won the inaugural WHL U.S. Challenge Cup in Kent, Washington, with Delta Hockey Academy last weekend. 

Brown and Semeniuk play bantam prep hockey for Delta, which is based out of Vancouver. The Challenge Cup is a new tournament implemented to give WHL scouts a look at bantam players eligible for the new two-round U.S. draft in March. Both players will be eligible for the 2020 WHL entry draft in May.

Brown is the team's captain, and the two players are cousins. Joining the two players at the tournament was their grandfather Metro Semeniuk — a longtime Fort St. John resident — along with the players' families. 

Delta Hockey Academy beat Yale Hockey Academy, also from Vancouver, 4-3 in the final.
