Aurora Huskies Award
The Female Development program strives to support all females in sport by creating an environment where players, coaches, trainers and administrators can participate and compete with their peers and approach levels of commitment and excellence that each has the potential to achieve.
Players are prepared with the knowledge and skills to progress to the next level through an atmosphere of choice, competing on an all Female team or in a mixed team in the Wood Buffalo House League teams.

Kaylee Hynes, born in Brampton Ontario has been a Fort McMurray resident since 2018, and has been a member of the Fort McMurray Minor Hockey Association since then. Kaylee has been recognized as an individual that knows what she wants in life and puts everything she has into achieving that. She is always willing to learn and grow no matter what situation she is put in and is there to lend a helping hand where needed.
This past year being her last, with the possibility of there not being enough for a roster for the U18 team to play, Kaylee spent a lot of her time helping with the younger divisions within the Huskies for U13, U15 as well as the Royals Inclusive Program. She believes that much like herself at that young age, she is now a role model for them and finds joy in being able to help those do better.
“Kaylee is looked up to by her teammates for her work ethic, positive attitude, and inclusivity. For these qualities when selecting our leadership team Kaylee was appointed to be the captain of our hockey team.” – Brent Upshall, U18 Aurora Huskies Head Coach
Kaylee will be attending the University of Lethbridge this coming year working towards a bachelor’s degree in arts for Psychology in hopes of becoming an Animal Assisted Therapist. During this time, she hopes to continue her hockey career by playing for the Lethbridge Eagles in the AJFHL.
