Woodstock Girl Going to All-Star Game

The Woodstock Wildcats will be represented at this weekend's NHL All-Star Game. 8-year-old Grace Dodgson of Woodstock is one of 40 minor hockey players (7-12-years-old) from across Canada selected to compete in a skills competition, hosted by Canadian Tire. Dodgson tells Heart FM how she made the top 40. "Well, I did a Canadian Tire skills competition in Waterloo. And I did all these skills on the ice and then I was one of the Top 40." The skill competition includes skating, passing, shooting and stick handling drills. Aside from the contest, Grace will also get to take in the All-Star Game with her Dad, Mike. Grace thinks about the once in a lifetime opportunity is, "Very Cool!" Her Dad says he's pretty pumped too. "Ya, I'm pretty excited. I've never seen an NHL All-Star Game, I've been to a couple of NHL games, but this is pretty big."
