“I have grown up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, putting on my first pair of skates when I was 2 years of age,” Owen said. “Ever since, I have just loved the game and enjoy spending as much time on the ice with friends as I can.”

Taught to play the right way, Owen prides himself on playing a full 200-foot game and loves to set up his teammates as much as scoring his own goals.

His dad has been the biggest influence in hockey so far, as the two spend a ton of time together both on and off the ice.

“He has made a backyard rink every year and that is where we spend as much time as we can together,” Owen said. “I have been able to watch my dad work with his University team and be around the players so I have been able see how elite players prepare and train.”

I am looking forward to meeting and playing with players from all around North America. This will be a great challenge and will make me a better player.
