The Chilliwack Chiefs announced Monday that they have traded 20 year old defenseman Max Wutzke to the Sherwood Park Crusaders in exchange for future considerations. Last season, after being acquired late in the season from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks Max suited up in 17 regular season games for the Chiefs, totalling 1 assist and 14 PIMS while bringing a steady presence to the back-end. He also played 8 games in the BCHL playoffs for the Chiefs. Wutzke, from Calgary, Alberta, is a veteran of over 115 BCHL games.
“Max brought a great work ethic and professionalism with him to the Chiefs last season. He was a really solid veteran presence for our group of young defensemen, and was a great addition to our locker room down the stretch. We wish him all the best in Sherwood Park with the Crusaders.” said Associate Coach and Assistant GM Brad Rihela.
