The Chilliwack Chiefs are proud to announce that 2001-born veteran forward Brett Rylance has secured his collegiate future after accepting a scholarship to attend Northern Michigan University. Rylance, a 5’10, 150 pound forward will join teammate and recently committed Joey Larson in Marquette, Michigan when they suit up for the Wildcats. This season, Rylance has registered 14 goals and 12 assists to go along with 26 minutes in penalties as he helps the Chiefs towards securing the 2nd spot in the BCHL’s mainland division.
“Our organization is extremely proud of Brett,” said Chiefs Head Coach and GM Brian Maloney. “He is a hardworking young man with high character and a constant willingness to learn and better himself and his game. I know he will be a great fit at NMU and we look forward to continuing his development prior to entering the NCAA ranks.”
When asked about his recent commitment, Rylance spoke to his excitement in becoming a Wildcat. “I’m truly honoured to be able to commit to such an amazing organization in Northern Michigan University. Special thanks to Coach Maloney, Coach Brad, my teammates, family, and friends for the support you have provided me over the years. Can’t wait to be a Wildcat!”.
