11-Year-Old Girl Takes Hockey World By Storm

11-Year-Old Girl Takes Hockey World By Storm

Nevermind the Stanley Cup playoffs  leave it to a vivacious 11-year-old girl to have the hockey world buzzing.

British goalie sensation Emma Nichols flexed her talent earlier this spring in May at the 2015 EIHA Inter Conference Tournament held in Sheffield, England. The 3-0 victory while playing with a boys’ team caught the attention of more than just the crowd, espnW reports.

A highlight reel of her acrobatic and outstanding goaltending skills went viral on YouTube and across social media.

As if that wasn’t enough, she scored the attention of professional hockey team the Cardiff Devils in the British Elite Hockey League, when they tweeted, "To 11-year-old British netminder Emma Nichol's agent, give us a call in 10 years."
