    It’s not often that a second-year player wins a rookie of the year award, but if the skate fits, then Jessica MacLean is wearing it.
    MacLean, who just turned 17, was recognized with the award for her outstanding first season in the Nova Scotia Female Midget AAA Hockey League, playing defence for the Chevy MacIntyre Panthers.
    Not only was it her first season in the league, it was her first season ever playing female hockey.
    The Iona native began skating at the age of three and started playing hockey at five. For the next 11 years, MacLean played on boys’ teams in the Cape Breton West Minor Hockey Association.
