Three OHA players named to JWHL all-star game

Alyssa MacMillan, Alley Rempe and Chloe Cook to play in Junior Women's Hockey League all-star game

Alyssa MacMillan, Alley Rempe and Chloe Cook of the Okanagan Hockey Academy will play in the Junior Women’s Hockey League all-star game.

MacMillan, of Penticton, has netted 18 points (5-13-18) in 25 JWHL games this season for the Female Prep squad, while Rempe also finished with 18 points (8-10-18) in 25 games. Cook, from Summerland, registered 11 points (6-5-11) in 25 games to lead all OHA defencemen.

Forty players will play in a short exhibition game featuring the North Division All-Stars versus the South Division. The game is a celebration of some of the league’s top players. Coaches nominate players from their teams who are then selected by the league based on their performance.

The all-star game will kick off the ninth annual Challenge Cup in Arlington, Va. Over the years, this event has grown to be one of the top scouting opportunities for National Collegiate Athletic Association programs as well as Hockey Canada and USA Hockey. The tournament will host 38 elite teams from the United States and Canada, attracting over 8,000 players and spectators to the Kettler Capitals Iceplex and Rockville Ice Arena from Feb. 12-15.

In 25 games, the OHA went 10-13-2 to sit fourth in the Major Junior North division. The OHA is in group C for the playoffs and open the the playoffs against Alberta’s St. Francis, Xavier. On Saturday, they play Honeybaked from Michigan and New York’s Nichols School. On Sunday, the OHA faces Quebec’s Dawson College.
