Great year for Burns Lake hockey player – Burns Lake Lakes District News

Kaylee Levick, a 12-year-old hockey player from Burns Lake, has had a successful season on the youth hockey circuit.

Levick, a member of Lake Babine Nation, was selected through Prince George’s Northern Development Program to play on the provincial U13 team, which competed at the BC Provincial Championships March 24-27 in Kamloops, BC. British Columbia. The team was made up of girls from Prince George, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John and the North West District.

Levick was the only player from the local district, which spans Vanderhoof to Prince Rupert, to be selected to the team, and her performance at the provincial championships showed why.

She ranked 14th out of 147 players at the provincial championships in points, registering two goals and four assists in the tournament.

“I think I had a really good year, I definitely grew as a player with all the different teams I played for. I have to say my highlight was going to the Provincials,” said said Levick Lakes District News.

In addition to Prince George’s Northern Development Program, Levick also plays for the Northern Capitals, the Burns Lake Bruins U13 team and the Carrier Kings. She was also invited to play spring hockey with a Yukon/Northwest Territories team in June.

For Levick, this is just the beginning.

“My dream is to play for Canada’s National Women’s Hockey Team, and I also want to play hockey at the university level. I feel like I still have to improve my shooting, but I will keep working hard all summer and next season,” she said.
