Of playing a team (Kwantlen Polytechnic University Eagles) with 16 rookies, Keyano Huskies head coach Connor Brady said: “We don’t look past anyone. These are the top eight teams in the country and we will have to bring our best every day. We will have to do what we have done all year long and continue to get better.”
Having attended the CCAA championships last year, with a fifth-place finish, Brady said of what they have learned of the CCAA experience: “You can’t take breaks. If you take breaks at this level you will be punished. You have to play for 90 plus minutes and keep the metal down.
“This is a pretty easy group to keep focused. These guys have been focused for a long time.”
