Sept 2,2014(ISN) – The Penticton Vees Jr. ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to
announce Steen Cooper has been named an Assistant Captain for the 2014-2015
season. Cooper joins Co-Captains, Cody DePourcq and Patrick Sexton along
with fellow Assistant Captain, Jack Ramsey, as part of the Vees leadership
group.

President, General Manager and Head Coach Fred Harbinson says Cooper is an
obvious choice to wear a letter, “Steen already has three seasons of
experience under his belt and clearly understands what it takes to be
successful at the junior ‘A’ level.”

Cooper, who turns 19 in November, returns for his second season with the
Vees after coming over from the Cowichan Valley Capitals midway through the
2013-2014 season. The Duncan, BC, product had six goals and 23 points in 30
regular season games with Penticton last year. Between the Vees and
Capitals, Cooper amassed nine goals and 41 points in 57 regular season
games. Cooper finished fourth in team playoff scoring last spring and tied
for second in goals with five in 11 playoff games.

Cooper brings plenty of experience to the table as he’s entering his fourth
season in the BCHL and was also a member of Team Canada West at the 2013
World Junior ‘A’ Challenge in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, last November. In 161
career regular season games, Cooper has accumulated 24 goals and 91 points.
Cooper is set to embark on his collegiate career next fall at Minnesota
State Mankato.
