Friday May 15th, 2015

Next month the Professional Hockey Writers Association will present the Calder Memorial Trophy to the NHL's top young talent from the 2014-15 season. 

But London's Emma Nichols, an 11-year-old goalie for the Lee Valley juniors hockey team, might have all three finalists beat. 

Nichols rode her best Henrik Lundqvist impression all the way to being named co-MVP of the England Ice Hockey Association Junior Inter-Conference tournament, stopping 35 shots in a game for South East against the Midlands and preserving a shutout win, Yahoo sports reported

Nichols had a .959 save percentage for the U-11 tournament. Her performance even won the accolades of the British Elite Ice Hockey League team the Cardiff Devils, who facetiously told Nichols' agent to give the team a call in 10 years. 

Check out Nichols' sweet moves below.
