Thunder Bay Queens Womeen's Hockey

THUNDER BAY  – The Thunder Bay Queens announced Tuesday their respective recipients of the CCM Hockey performer awards for the first half of the 2016-17 season.

SPORTOP MIDGET AA: Aden Johnson (G)/Josée Robinson (G) – The midget AA honours are shared by their goaltending duo of Aden Johnson and Josée Robinson.

Together they have posted 18 shutouts to date along with a goals-against average of just over 1.00 per game.

Their strong showing in net has been a big reason for the team’s success during the first half of the campaign.

Of note, the Sportop midget AA Queens are also off to Faribault, Minn., this weekend for a three-game set with the Shattuck-St. Mary’s Sabres prep school under-16 side.

The two clubs will play at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Saturday at the SSM Ice Arena before finishing up the series at noon Sunday.

TOPPER’S PIZZA MIDGET A: Cameron Ivall (G) – Now in her third year with the midget A program, Ivall consistently stands tall between the pipes, not only in key games but every time she skates to her net.

Her sense of humour and smile is always present no matter what and she is a true leader amongst her peers and an asset to her team.

Ivall manages to balance school where she is on the honour roll, hockey, and high school sports while still having time to display her artistic talents.

She is a graduating player at the end of the season with plans to move on to study Interactive Media Development at Confederation College.

Bantam AA: Brenna Nicol (F) – The bantam AA’s team captain earned the CCM performer accolades for her team.

Nicol provides an excellent example of leadership, skill set and a positive example for the squad both on and off the ice.

Among the scoring leaders, Nicol is a go to player on the team ready to do whatever it takes to provide her team with the opportunity to win.

TIM HORTONS BANTAM A: Marissa Brosseau, (G) – A key cog in the success of the bantam A Queens this season has been due to the play of their goaltender Brosseau.

She has consistently been one of the best performers on the club in the first half of the season while playing well and often being the difference maker.

PEEWEE: Kaiya Kamande, (D) – Helping anchoes the peewees defensive corps, Kamande also exemplifies all of the qualities required in earning the initial CCM performer award for the team.

She is a very hard-working and consistent player for the peewees and comes to play and compete in every practice and game.
