The Cataracts Danny Wicks

Updated: February 10, 2016

With 11 goals and 19 assists, the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts Danny Wicks has shown the Central West Senior Hockey League that he has what it takes to compete at the Senior “AAA” Level in Newfoundland. Wicks, a native of Mount Pearl, does not have the hockey resume of the Corner Brook Royal’s Brandon Hynes or his teammate Cam Fergus, but Wicks has been a standout for the Cataracts this season and this has helped propel the Cats to first place in the CWSHL.

Prior to joining the Cataracts, Wicks had spent several seasons in the Maritime Junior A Hockey League but has cemented himself as a standout in the CWSHL, sitting sixth in scoring after regular season play.  This is a great accomplishment for the young forward, playing in just his second year in the CWSHL.

With the Cataracts opting to have import Collin Circelli sit at home this season, Wicks was given the opportunity to step up to the top line and play with import Cam Fergus who is one of the best in the league right now. Wicks brings speed to the line and a work ethic that has seen him win the praises of the Cataracts coaching staff and his teammates.

Wicks is a solid two-way player that has developed a sense for the game that is generally only seen in veteran players. He has a great eye and a sense for plays as they develop, giving him plenty of opportunity to score and contribute for his first place club.

With the Cataracts coming off two wins over the Gander Flyers in the CWSHL semi-finals, Wicks has picked up 4 assists.
