“The Pioneers are getting one of the most courageous players I’ve ever

coached,” said Vees coach-GM Fred Harbinson. “I have had the pleasure of being involved with the development of Cody Depourcq over the past few seasons.  Cody started as an AP player in his 15-year-old season and is now contributing to our strong start as one of the most exciting 16-year-olds in the BCHL.”
