BC Hockey announced February 1, 2012 that Shea Weighill (Nakusp, BC) has been named the Female Midget AAA player of the month for December. Weighill was a big part of the Kootenay Wildcat offense in December, scoring three (3) goals throughout the month.
The Wildcats currently sit fourth in the FMAAA standings. Only two (2) points behind the third place Vancouver Fusion, Weighill’s offensive skills will be an integral part of the Wildcat’s road to climbing up the standings. She was also the winner of the shoot-out competition at the FMAAA All Star Game that was held December 18, 2011 at the Langley Events Centre.
Weighill was chosen from a high calibre list of other nominees. The runners up in no particular order are as follows:
- Fraser Valley Phantom – Brianna Keats
- Thompson-Okanagan Rockets – Kianna Karolyi
- Prince George Cougars – Carly Bursey
The Female Midget AAA League was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite Female Midget teams.
