Stopper Stuart among youngest at BC Hockey camp

Chilliwack's Kate Stuart is one of just six 2000-born players in a field of 42 hitting the ice in Salmon Arm.

Chilliwack Minor Hockey product Kate Stuart is one of six goaltenders at this week’s BC Hockey 2015 Female U18 Provincial Camp.

The six keepers are joined by 36 skaters in Salmon Arm, with the camp continuing through Sunday.

Stuart, a member of Chilliwack’s bantam A1 squad, is vying for one of 25 spots in the Team BC Summer Strength and Conditioning Camp, being held June 27-30 in Richmond.

Stuart is one of the youngest players in Salmon Arm, the only goaltender and one of just six overall with 2000 birthdays.

The majority have 1998 birthdays, with a few 1999’s sprinkled in.

Stuart earned her spot with a strong performance at the U-16 BC Cup, which was held April 2-5 in Salmon Arm.
