You know you have truly earned a position on a provincial hockey team when you’re the only player east of Truro on it.
Kenzie MacPhail, of Inverness, will be one of two goaltenders who will lead Team Nova Scotia into the Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, Alberta, this coming February.
At 15, MacPhail has spent practically two-thirds of his life between the pipes and is currently the starting goaltender for the Cape Breton West Islanders of the Nova Scotia Major Midget AAA Hockey League.
The selection process began in May with eight goaltenders invited to try out for the team.
