For a young defender, the sky is the limit coming into the 2017-18 hockey season.
 
Fort Saskatchewan local Payton McIsaac has signed with the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the AJHL for the upcoming season, but he is still looking to make it to major juniors.
 
A second round WHL bantam draft pick in 2015, McIsaac already has 11 games played with the Saskatoon Blades over the past two seasons.
 
"It's been really good to grow up with someone like Kirby, he's someone who I've played with my whole life," said McIsaac, who will be battling for a spot on the Blades alongside Rangers alumni Kirby Dach.
 
While playing on the Fort Saskatchewan Major Midget AAA Rangers for the past two seasons, he's put up 34 points in 63 games as a defenceman.
 
McIsaac and Dach will be attending the Saskatoon Blades camp starting on August 26.
 
"It's good for us to play together and push each other because we can always rely back on each other."
 
The Sherwood Park Crusaders have given McIsaac the opportunity tryout in the WHL, but if the Blades do release him, he will be report to the Cru.
