Emma Nichols: The best 11-year-old goalie you’ve ever seen

While you may think England is an unlikely place to produce great hockey goalies, Emma Nichols may be changing that mindset. The 11-year-old goaltender put on an absolute show at the 2015 EIHA Inter Conference Tournament held in Sheffield, backing her team to a 3-0 shutout, making 35 saves in the performance. Check out the video.

Skip to the 54 second mark if you want to see an absurd glove save for someone in her age level. She’s awesome.

The Cardiff Devils of The British Elite Ice Hockey League were impressed with the youngsters performance, as they’ve suggested on Twitter she give them a call in ten years times.

Emma’s dad told the Romford Recorder that his daughter was a big fan of tournament.

“Emma loved every minute of this year’s tournament and had such a great time with her team-mates on and off the ice.”

Pure jubilation. That’s all you can ask for. I can’t wait to see her next highlight pack.
