The Chiefs are pleased to announce the signing of 2000 born forward Carter Wilkie.
Wilkie joins the Chiefs after two seasons with the International Hockey Academy Midget Prep team based in Calgary Alberta.
Last season he led his team in scoring with 20 goals and 23 assists in 36 games.
Chiefs General Manager and Head Coach Brian Maloney had this to say about the Chiefs newest recruit.
“Our scouting staff has been watching Carter for a while. We feel Carter is one of those players that can play up and down the lineup and can be utilized in all different situations. He has good offence instincts that should really help our young team next year. To add to all that, he has unbelievable character and we look forward to watching his and his game grow. We’re excited to have Carter join the Chiefs family.”
Wilkie is thrilled to be making the move to Chilliwack
“I am very excited and honored to start my junior career in Chilliwack. The Chiefs have produced many good players and have an exceptional program to be involved with. I will be very proud when I put the Chiefs jersey on for the first time in the upcoming season and continuing their long history of high level hockey. I’m also looking forward to being part of the community of Chilliwack as they have long standing support from their community and that is critical when being part of a junior team. I am very excited and can’t wait to get out to Chilliwack.”
When asked what type of player the Chiefs are getting, Wilkie describes himself as a motivated two way player.
“The Chiefs are getting a highly motivated player. Dedicated to improvement and development every practice and game. I try hard to adapt to any situation within a game whether that ranges from playing an offensive or defensive role. I have worked hard to be known as a player who has a nose for getting to the net, and who is dedicated to being a good teammate and a role model within the community.”
