The Chiefs are extremely happy to announce that goaltender Mathieu Caron has committed to Brown University for the 2020-21 NCAA Season. Caron, a long-time member of the Chiefs going back to the 2016-17 BCHL season, has helped backstop the Chiefs this season with a 17-9 regulation record to go along with a 2.51 GAA and a .913 Save %. In his career with Chilliwack, Caron has registered 55 regulation wins, and has a career GAA of 2.61, and save % of .908.
Along with Ethan Bowen, Caron is the only member of the current Chiefs squad that was wearing a Chiefs jersey when the team won the 2018 RBC National Championship (since re-named the Centennial Cup), and battled back from suffering a season ending knee injury last season to return to the team for the beginning of this year.
When asked about his commitment, and his development as a goaltender as a member of the Chilliwack Chiefs, Caron said “Brown felt like the best fit for me and I am ready to move on to the next level of my career.” A staple in the community, and one of the hardest working Chiefs of his generation, Brian Maloney says that Caron is very deserving of this commitment. “Mathieu has become a professional in terms of preparation for games, he started here as a backup goaltender and progressed steadily over his tenure. He has dealt with adversity in the form of his injury and has shown that he can bounce back and be the player he wants to be.”
