BC Hockey announced March 15, 2012 that Brittany Wakefield (North Vancouver, BC) has been named the Female Midget AAA player of the month for February. Wakefield is a key leader for the Vancouver Fusion, and her leadership has been instrumental in bringing the team together.
“Brittany has really stepped up this past month,” said Fusion Head Coach Chris Wagner. Her leadership has been key to the success of her line mates (6 points each) and to moving the team forward in their drive to the playoffs. The team went 3-1-4 in February, and Brittany was a big part of that success.”
Wakefield put up seven (7) points for the Fusion this month with two (2) goals and five (5) assists.
The Fusion finished the regular season in third place, which bought them a bye to the playoff semi-finals. The Fusion will take on the second place Thompson-Okanagan Rockets in a best of three weekend from March 16-18, 2012 at the Rutland West Arena in Kelowna, BC.
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.
