CBC Sports has announced its very first Our Game star.
As this week's winner, Fredericton's Hazel Wells is eligible to win tickets to the Stanley Cup Final and will be featured on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
An Our Game star is selected each week for being the most active member of the Our Game community – posting photos, adding friends and teammates, starting groups and discussions, writing blogs and more.
Wells has been coaching atom, peewee and bantam hockey for nearly five years.
She's also a board member with the Fredericton Youth Hockey Association and volunteers doing administrative work at the bantam level.
In her Our Game blog, she writes that she's an advocate of fair play and believes all players, regardless of skill level, should have equal ice time.
"Remember, you might be great in your level, but when you move up, someone else is bound to be better and it could be you sitting on the bench next time," she writes.
An Our Game star will be selected each week based on his or her contribution to the website. Each winner will be entered to win tickets to the Stanley Cup Final and be recognized on Hockey Night in Canada.
