Scott Webber

Cowichan Valley Midget Tier 1 Capitals’ head coach Aaron Spotts counts on Scott Webber in many different situations.

That’s because Webber, who turns 18 on Jan. 31 and graduated a year early from Cowichan Secondary School, is one of the most versatile forwards on his hockey club.

“He’s both power play and penalty killing this year and he’s kind of played from our top line all the way down to our third line role,’’ said Spotts.

“He’s just one of those players you can kind of find a spot for him anywhere.’’

Webber is a third-year midget player, having played the previous two seasons at the Midget B level.

“I’m finally one of the bigger players,’’ he said. “I’ve put a lot of height on in the last year.’’

Webber played some hockey at the A level in his second year of peewee. Otherwise, “I was always kind of the last cut,’’ he said.

Having someone like Spotts, who played for the B.C. Hockey League’s Cowichan Valley Capitals and college hockey in the U.S. at St. Scholastica, as his coach has been beneficial for Webber.

“He definitely has a lot of knowledge on different systems and he definitely knows the game well,’’ he said.
