A strong December performance has earned Swift Current Diamond Energy Wildcats forward Jill Kennedy Saskatchewan Female Midget AAA Hockey League third star honours for the month of December.
Kennedy, 17, collected five points in six games during December while helping the Wildcats post a 3-3 record. She picked up her first league game winning goal by scoring in the third period of a 3-2 win over the Battleford Sharks on Dec. 10.
The Wildcats assistant captain is currently tied for the team lead in scoring with six goals and 12 points over the Wildcats first 19 games. She has already surpassed her totals from last year's rookie campaign where she had seven goals and eight points over 28 games with the Wildcats.
In addition to her on-ice contributions to the Wildcats, Kennedy found time to assist with the Kids in Motion and female novice hockey programs during the past month.
The SFMAAHL first star for December was Prince Albert's Carlee Hrenkiw, with second star honours for December earned by Saskatoon Stars captain Lauren Zary.
