Move over, Connor McDavid, there's a new prospect to get excited about.

An 11-year-old British goaltender named Emma Nichols put on a captivating performance in the crease during a tournament game in England.

Nichols stopped all 35 shots she faced in London borough Havering's victory over Midlands in the English Ice Hockey Association's Inter Conference Tournament last week.

Here's a highlight reel of Nichols' work, as described by an understandably excited announcer.

The Cardiff Devils of the British Elite League playfully reached out to Nichols' agent after her video went viral.

She's seven years away from being eligible for the NHL Entry Draft, but it's never too early for international scouts to take note.
