The Chilliwack Chiefs are proud to announce that graduating defencemen Jordan Chudley and Anthony Allepot have each secured the next step in their hockey futures.
Chudley will be heading to the University of Windsor in the fall to play for the Lancers.
“I feel very excited to be joining a great organization such as Windsor. A big thing for me was to keep playing at a high level of hockey but also receive a good education,” said Chudley. “At Windsor, they take both parts of that very seriously which really helped me make my decision. The coaching staff is also top-notch with a lot of experience, which will also help me keep developing as a player and person.”
Chudley played 94 games in the WHL before coming to Chilliwack this past October. He suited up for 34 games with the Chiefs.
Allepot will be just up the road from Chudley, studying at the University of Western Ontario.
“I chose Western because it’s a good school close to home with a great historical hockey program. I knew I would have the best academic supervision possible to get my degree. As well, London is a beautiful city and it will allow me to keep working on my English,” Allepot said.
The Quebec native was acquired by the Chiefs ahead of the trade deadline this season from Penticton. Before his time in the BCHL, Allepot played four seasons with the Val-d’Or Foreurs in the QMJHL.
“We couldn’t be more proud of Tony and Jordan for their commitments to two great programs. They both brought so much leadership and experience to our back end this season, and were both a massive part of our teams’ success and identity,” said Associate Coach and Assistant General Manager Brad Rihela.
Congratulations Anthony and Jordan!
