Cody Savey’s hockey journey began in his hometown of Gold River, “I played minor hockey there until first year bantam and then moved here to Campbell River for a couple of years.”

His hockey highlight came in his final year as a Tyee when as clear underdogs, the Campbell River bantams knocked off Tier 2 powerhouses Port Moody and Vernon to capture Gold at the Provincials in Salmon Arm (2016). “Winning provincials as a second year bantam was definitely my highlight so far.”

When fans think of Cody Savey they think of a tough gritty 16 year old player that can fight but he’s only dropped his gloves once this season; that was in his second game with the Storm. There’s another side to Cody.

Last season he demonstrated that he can be playmaker and score goals. “Last year, West Van (West Van Academy Elite 15’s) was so good for me, I developed my skills, was on the ice every day, got better and was in the gym daily.” Last year, the 6’ 2”, 210 pound, forward averaged better than a point per game, 14 goals and 17 assists in 30 games.

Cody got his first taste of Major Junior last year when he played two games for the Seattle Thunderbirds, “It was another really good experience, a great environment for me and I want to get back there.”

Although he’s a Seattle prospect, he’s affiliated with the BCHL Powell River Kings.

Saves describes his style, “I’m a power forward out there, I can throw the body around but I can also be an offensive player, put the puck in the net and get the points. This year I want to prove to myself that I can continue to improve and prove to Seattle that I can make it there next year.”

Right now Cody Savey is in Campbell River and he’s thrilled, “It feels so good to play here. I love how my family can come out and watch me play, support me, it’s great.

Tonight Cody and the Storm take on the Nanaimo Buccaneers in a very important game. He gets up for these games; earlier in the season, on November 2nd, he had his best game of the year, named 1st star in Nanaimo with 2 goals and a bunch of big hits.
