Shykula-Ross receives All-Star honours during stellar season

Salmon Arm’s Maggie Shykula-Ross was chosen to play in the 2011-2012 FMAAA All Star Game Dec. 18

Salmon Arm’s Maggie Shykula-Ross, a Grade 12 student at Salmon Arm Secondary, was chosen to play in the 2011-2012 Female Midget AAA (FMAAA) All Star Game Dec. 18 at the Langley Event Centre.

BC Hockey announced the names of the players selected to the All Star roster Dec. 2.

Shykula-Ross, who plays for the Kelowna Rockets Female AAA midget girls, is having an exceptional season, currently tied for most points in the league with nine goals, 12 assists, 22 penalty minutes, for 21 points in 10 games.

The game will take place as part of a FMAAA league weekend that will be held in the Lower Mainland from Dec. 17 – 19. A full schedule of events for that weekend is available on the FMAAA website.

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 to challenge other elite female midget teams.

Last month, Shykula-Ross contributed to Team BC’s best-ever finish at the National Women’s Under 18 Championship in Sagenay, Quebec. She was joined by Alexa Ranahan from Salmon Arm.
