Moose Lake Area Rebel Bryceton Butkiewicz (No. 12) takes the faceoff.

Moose Lake Area Rebel hockey player Bryceton Butkiewicz was selected to participated in the CCM High Performance 18 Spring Festival March 18-20 to be held at the Doug Woog Arena (formerly Wakota Arena) in South St. Paul.

The CCM High Performance Boys 18 provides players born in 1998 and juniors in high school with the opportunity to participate with and against the top players in Minnesota at their age level. Many NCAA and junior league scouts attend this annual event to select players who have the potential to play at the next level after their high school career is over.

Four teams are formed by combining the high school sections (Sections 1A/AA and 3A/AA, Sections 2A/AA and 6A/AA, Sections 4A/AA and 7A/AA, Sections 5A/AA and 8A/AA).

Butkiewicz from the Moose Lake Area Rebels of Section 5A was selected for the Section 5A/AA and 8A/AA team. Selections for the teams are made from both A and AA sized schools. Butkiewicz was honored to be the only single A player selected from Sections 5A/AA and one of the few single A players selected for the entire festival.

The Section 5 and 8 team went undefeated through the weekend taking top honors. Friday they beat the 4 and 7 team 4-3, Saturday they beat the 1 and 3 team 7-5, and Sunday they beat the 2 and 6 team 8-6. Butkiewicz played a great series as center adding an assist in their win on Sunday.
