Both players say they are proud to be part of a select group of Aboriginal players in the WHL but would like to see more. Roy grew up in the small northwestern Saskatchewan Métis community of Beauval. He played much of his minor hockey in Meadow Lake before moving on to the Midget AAA Prince Albert Mintos and eventually the Brandon Wheat Kings. He says if northern players have the discipline and the drive they can make it but fears there may be too many distractions these days, such as technology and home video games, keeping the younger players from spending the time they need to refine their game at the rink.

Indigenous players both budding stars in the WHL Taken from Eagle Feather Newspaper - Submitted by Karen Roy

Eric Roy and Michael Ferland are amongst a handful of indigenous players in the Western Hockey League but that is where the similarities between the two players mostly ends. The 18-year-old Roy is a s mo ot h s ka t in g f in es s e defenceman who can be found anchoring the blueline for the Brandon Wheat Kings on most nights as one of the team’s top players.

and he reads the play real well – he’s just a great defenceman.”

Ferland, 20, is a robust and rugged winger who is just as adept at using his fists in a fight as he is scoring goals. For three and-a-half year he also suited up with the Wheat Kings but a WHL deadline trade brought the overager to the Saskatoon Blades a few weeks ago. Playing alongside each other for two and-a-half seasons, both players are fully aware of what the other brings to the table.

For Roy, being one of the top prospects in the 2013 NHL draft can be both a blessing and a burden. It can certainly add a lot of additional attention and pressure to someone who only turned 18 a few months ago. And, in particular, especially since player rankings change on an almost weekly basis – Roy has been ranked anywhere from ninth to 39th amongst North American skaters in this year’s

draft. Nevertheless, for now, Roy says he has just been trying to play the best hockey he can as a struggling Brandon team tries to make the playoffs and the draft will take care of itself in good time.

“I just try and ignore it (the draft),” he says. “The day will come and that’s when the teams, the scouts – they are the ones who matter. It’s Roy says he can fully understand why the just the draft ranking and I don’t let it get to my Blades gave up a 2013 first round draft choice head.
