Trio of local players get all-star nod

Maple Ridge’s Madison Sands, Payge Pena, and Emily Jude were each selected to take part in the all-star game this weekend.

A trio of local hockey players have been named to B.C. Hockey’s Female Midget AAA All-Star Game, to be held this Sunday at the Langley Events Centre.

Maple Ridge’s Madison Sands, Payge Pena, and Emily Jude were each selected to take part in the all-star game this weekend.

Sands and Pena both play for the Fraser Valley Phantom, while Jude plays for the Vancouver Fusion.

Pena leads the Phantom in scoring, with nine goals in 11 games this season. Sands, the Phantom’s top blueliner, is the highest scoring defenceman in the league, with 12 points in 12 games.

Jude has three goals in 10 games this year with the Fusion.

In all, 40 players (12 defencemen, 24 forwards and four goaltenders) were selected from the province’s five female midget AAA teams. Players were selected based on their on-ice and off-ice performance by the all-star game selection committee.

Sunday’s game will include a skills competition during the game’s intermissions, which will include a fastest skater race and a shoot-out competition.
