Kerley, who won a provincial championship last season with the Williams Lake Female Timberwolves, is in her first year with the Capitals, and is attending high school at Prince George secondary.

The hardest-working player recognition comes from the BC Construction Association — a sponsor of the FMAAA league.

Kerley currently sits second on the Capitals for points on the season, and has recorded two goals and six assists for eight points in nine games on the campaign.

The Capitals, meanwhile, sit third in the league with three wins, five losses and a tie.

She joins the Fraser Valley Rush’s Julia Smith, the Greater Vancouver Comets’ Kennedy Prachnau, the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers’ Sydney Hamilton and the Vancouver Island Seals’ Katie Banman.

Pigeon, meanwhile, is in his second year with the Cougars, and also attends Prince George Secondary School.

He currently leads the Cougars in scoring with 12 goals and seven assists in 12 games played so far this season.

The Cougars currently sit fourth in the BCMML with seven wins, three losses and two ties.
