Pickering is an electric player with the puck when he’s at his best, utilizing his quick footwork and deceptive movements to get around opposing players and move the puck up the ice. In his sophomore season with the Broncos, he recorded nine goals and 33 points in 62 games. Pickering is expected to return to Swift Current for a third year in the 2022-23 season.
