TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – SASKATOON STARS

After an opening night loss, the Saskatoon Stars went on a 16-game winning streak between Oct. 4 and Dec. 20 to distance themselves from the pack and win their second straight Saskatchewan Female Midget AAA Hockey League regular season title. Even though 14 players returned from the team that won a bronze medal at last year’s Esso Cup – including leading scorer Mackenna Parker (35 points) – three of the Stars’ top four point-getters were rookies. One year after serving as affiliated players, Grace Shirley (32 points) and Anna Leschynshyn (25 points) finished among the top 10 in league scoring, while Joelle Fiala had 19 points in her maiden season with the Stars. Another rookie shone in net: Jordan Ivanco went a perfect 11-0. Emma Johnson picked up 13 wins of her own, posting three shutouts and the league’s second-best goals-against average (1.47) and save percentage (.942).
