Estevan Bruins forward Cody Davis has taken the classic story of a young hockey enthusiast, working towards playing in a once in a lifetime chance.
The 2002-born left-handed shooter from Alameda, SK started playing hockey from the age of 3. Growing up around the Estevan community, he played with the U13 and U15 Bruins. Cody then made a move to Moose Jaw to play with the Moose Jaw Generals U18 AAA team scoring 26 Goals during the 2018-2019 season. This caught the attention of the SJHL scouts, and The Estevan Bruins called him in. Davis scored his first goal with The SJHL Estevan Bruins on 0:57 into the game against The Melfort Mustangs.
During the COVID-19 shortened season, Davis spent his time in training and honing his skills preparing for the upcoming season.
Since the beginning of the season Davis has hit the ice hard and accumulated ten goals with fifteen assists for a total of 25 points thus far. Known by the team as the guy on the ice who sets of the goals, he is a valued member of the team.
Listed at 5’10, 165 lbs, Davis is not only a skilled player and a great team player, but a force to be reckoned with. His drive to better himself find his either on ice with extra practice time, or in the Gym to work on his physic. He has not only produced offensively, but his drive and competitiveness has moulded Davis as a major piece on the Bruins roster this year.
“This is the year that we have a once in a lifetime opportunity. We have a strong team, and with the Centennial Cup coming up, I want to show everyone what I can do”, said Davis.
We cannot wait to see what Cody Davis will do in the upcoming games as the season progresses, and the Centennial Cup, that is to be hosted by The Bruins in May.
