Wolverines GM/HC Shawn Martin had this to say “Caleb’s development since he has arrived in Whitecourt has been nothing short of unbelievable, he has spent countless hours becoming a better player and seeing him get rewarded firstly with a division 1 scholarship and now this award is a great testament to himself and the Wolverines organization.  On a personal Level I could not be more proud of Caleb’s achievements this season and he will leave a lasting legacy behind in Whitecourt for years to come.”
