“Maddie is a great role model on and off the ice,” said Cougars head coach Stewart Malgunas. “She works hard, loves the game and is a pleasure to coach.”
Fjellstrom was chosen from a high calibre list of other nominees. The runners up in no particular order are as follows:

· Pacific Ravens – Emily Jude
The Female Midget AAA League 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.
