Brandonite Duncan Campbell and the BCHL's Penticton Vees will open up the Royal Bank Cup on Sunday against the Brooks Bandits.
Campbell, a member of the WHL Champion Brandon Wheat Kings last year, says its been an amazing year.
"Never would have expected to unfold the way it did. Obviously my plan was to stay in Brandon. Things didn't work out and I never looked back and I embraced being here in Penticton."
Campbell scored the Game 7 overtime winner to clinch the BCHL Championship.
He is joined on the roster by Elkhorn native Taylor Sanheim.
"Never liked playing against him, always kind of rivals," says Campbell about Sanheim. "I'm glad he;s on my team now because he's a lot better to play with than against."
