23 Spruce Kings camp Miguel Marques 2021-09-19
Fifteen-year-old right winger Miguel Marques of Prince George looked right at home playing for Team Blue over the weekend in the Spruce Kings' junior A training camp at Rolling Mix Concrete Arena.

Team B.C. is one win away from winning the WHL Cup and Miguel Marques of Prince George is one of the reasons gold is within the team’s grasp.

Marques, 15, scored his fifth goal in four tournament games Saturday and also picked up three assists in a 9-2 semifinal win over Saskatchewan Saturday in Red Deer, Alta.

Tomas Mrsic of Surrey, a teammate of Marques’ on the Delta Academy Under-17 Prep team, led B.C. in the semifinal with four goals.

The boys from B.C. will face Team Alberta in Sunday’s final (noon, PT).

The four-team tournament features the top 2006-born players in Western Canada.

B.C. wrapped up its round-robin schedule Friday with a 5-4 overtime win over Alberta.

In other tournament results, B.C. opened with an 8-1 victory over Saskatchewan, then shut out Manitoba 5-0 on Thursday.

Marques is a potential first-round pick in the 2021 WHL draft in December. He ranks second in team scoring with his Delta Academy U-17 team and in eight games he has 14 goals and 19 assists for 33 points. He played one game for the U-18 team and picked up a goal and an assist.
