11-Year-Old British Girl Posts an Amazing Shutout
Emma Nichols is only 11 years old, but she is well on her way to becoming a YouTube sensation.
A video from the 2015 EIHA Inter Conference Tournament held in Sheffield, England was recently uploaded, and it featured the young British netminder picking up a 3-0 shutout in fantastic fashion:
The roughly two minute clip shows an impressive assortment of saves, making it hard to believe that she is only an 11-year-old.
The tournament took place from May 1st to 5th, and this video was eventually uploaded on May 14th.
Not much else is known about the young phenom, but with brilliant saves like that, it won’t be long before we hear more about her. Team GB may have a future hockey star on their hands!
h/t to Paul Wheeler for posting the video on Twitter.
Certain “experts” in UK hockey claim girls just can’t play on the same level as boys. They should watch Emma Nichols & be educated-again.

According to the announcer in the clip, the team needed to win the next game as well. They stuck with their goaltending rotation, and their other goalie got a shutout as well!
