Chilliwack’s Tamina Kehler lights lamp at Hockey B.C. camp

Kehler sniped three goals in three games at the U-18 invitational camp in Lake Cowichan.

Chilliwack goaltender Kate Stuart backstopped her team to a 2-1 record at last weekend’s B.C. Hockey U-18 Invitational Camp, with Tamina Kehler scoring three goals in three games.

Top female prospects hit the ice at the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena in Lake Cowichan, with both players suiting up for Team Purple. Stuart split netminding duties with Victoria’s Jamie Johnson. She made her first appearance Friday and was nearly flawless in 30 minutes of work, allowing one goal.

Stuart’s team won 4-2, with Kehler scoring one of the Team Purple goals.

Kehler had another goal in game number two, a 5-3 loss on Saturday to Team White.

Stuart played the second half of the game, allowing three goals.

Kehler kept lighting the lamp in Team Purple’s third and final game on Sunday, scoring once in a 6-2 win over Team Blue.

Stuart got the start, letting just one puck past her.

Sara Vander Hoek was held pointless in three games for Team Navy, which finished 2-1.

Taylor Read had one goal in one outing with Team Green.

The camp also included practices, off-ice technical training and fitness testing. The Chilliwackians hope to be invited to a followup provincial camp, taking place July 13–16 in Shawnigan Lake, B.C.

Eventually they want to land roster spots on the squad that will represent B.C. at the 2017 Women’s U-18 National Championship in Quebec City, QC this fall.
