Terheege, who now lives in Penticton, will be playing about 25 sessions with up-and-coming young Revelstoke players this weekend.
“We’re lucky to have Adam come and play with us,” said the club’s Kevin Dorrius. “He was the English Junior Champion and also played on the World Tour. What we’re trying to do is up tour juniors’ skill levels so they can close the competitive gap with junior players in Vancouver.”
