BC Hockey announced that Kate Klassen of the Fraser Valley Rush has been named the Female Midget AAA League (FMAAA) Player of the Month for October 2017. The 5’7” forward from Chilliwack, BC tallied up 13 points (7 goals, 6 assists) in the nine (9) games in October.
Klassen, 15, serves as the captain of the Rush and has helped the team to a perfect record of 9-0. Kate is a very hard worker in practice, which pays off in her games. She leads by example both on and off the ice. Klassen is tied for the league lead in goals and is tied for third in FMAAA scoring as Fraser Valley has the league’s top six (6) scorers.
The FMAAA 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. The league has had over 100 players move on to post-secondary hockey opportunities.
