2014 Esso Cup
Whether between the posts, on the blue line or up front, shining stars are appearing all over the ice at the Gateway Ice Centre in Stoney Creek, host community of the sixth annual Esso Cup.
Jessica Wong’s hockey journey took her from Nova Scotia to Alberta before she found a home in Stoney Creek during the 2007-2008 season. In two seasons she collected 125 points and just as many memories.
In her last year as a Sabre, the former captain led a short-benched team to provincial bronze. Now at the University of Wisconsin, McKibbon knows she wouldn’t have made it to Madison without her time in Stoney Creek.
Elaine Chuli backstopped both the Midget and juniors Sabres during her time in Stoney Creek. The goalie says playing for a perennial powerhouse helped prepare her for post-secondary hockey and beyond.
Sarah Nurse played more than 200 games and recorded 244 points in her three seasons with the Sabres. Even more important, she grew into the type of leader she admired when she first arrived in Stoney Creek.
Brianne Jenner scored the goal that kick-started the comeback to Olympic gold in Sochi. Six years earlier in Stoney Creek, Ont., she wore the C for a team that won three gold medals. The three-year shares her memories of Stoney Creek.

From tournament veterans to rookies, from the west to east coast, check out the top three players to watch as chosen by each team, that are taking to the ice this week at the 2014 Esso Cup.
