Brandonite Amy Lee may not have been able to guide her University of Manitoba Bisons to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport women’s hockey championship in Fredericton, N.B., this year, but she’ll have a chance to win some hardware there.

The 22-year-old centre, who just finished her final year of eligibility, is the Canada West conference’s nominee for the national Marion Hilliard Award for hockey, academics and community service.

On the ice, the 5-foot-6, 160-pound Vincent Massey high school graduate had eight goals and 14 assists to help the Bisons finish fourth in the conference with a 17-7-4 record. They fell in the first round of the playoffs to the Regina Cougars.

Lee has made a huge impact in the community as well. Her marks have her on pace to be an academic all-Canadian for the fourth straight year and she has volunteered as a mentor for young hockey players in Winnipeg and Brandon.

She also created a program with the Bisons to visit minor hockey practices in Winnipeg to teach skills and answer the kids’ questions.

Lee was a Christmas Cheer co-ordinator for Bisons Against Bullying and is a leader with Bison Book Buddies.

"Amy embodies the true spirit of this award and is a deserving recipient of the Canada West nomination," Bisons coach Jon Rempel said in a press release. "She has been a true ambassador for this program over the last five years, on the ice, in the classroom and in the community. She has built an extremely strong connection with minor female hockey teams in the city of Winnipeg and has also worked tirelessly to promote our program through various community events and outreach activities. Her contributions are valued and have made an impact."
