GDI trained netminder Sydne Valiquette recently recieved the CTV Winnipeg Sports Star of the Week.

To say the least, she has been the backbone for her River East Kodiaks team. Play with the team through Grade 10 and into her Senior year of highschool she has grown and matured into a goaltender that seems to love the pressure that surrounds the position. "My brothers took some shots on me and the more they shot the more I wanted to play," stated Valiquette when asked about how she developed a knack for the position. GDI has helped her throughout the past two seasons, including this past year where River East was able to reach the finals of the WWHSHL. The staff would like to congratulate Syd on being recognized for her strong play throughout this year and would like to wish her all the best moving forward this season!
