Chilliwack/Langley – Here we go! It’s time for Chevrolet BCHL Playoffs, starting Friday, March 1st at Prospera Centre in Chilliwack.
- For the first time in 17 years, the Chilliwack Chiefs are the winners of the Ron Boileau Memorial Trophy, which is awarded to the team with the most points following the BCHL regular season. The last Chiefs team to do this was the 2002 squad. That team had a record of 46-10-4, and was led by Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) Player of the Year Jeff Tambellini. This team also won the BCHL playoffs championship, defeated the AJHL’s Drayton Valley Thunder, to win the Doyle Cup, and played in the RBC Cup National Junior A Championship in Halifax where we lost in the semi-finals.
- Round One of this year’s playoffs begins Friday, March 1st and Saturday, March 2nd at Prospera Centre. Both games will start at 7:00pm.
- Chilliwack will face the Langley Rivermen in the first round.
- Tickets are available at www.chilliwackchiefs.net or by visiting the Chiefs Administration Office at Prospera Centre during regular business hours. The Prospera Centre Box Office will open at 4:00pm on Friday and at 2:00pm on Saturday.
- The popular Save-on-Foods More Value Pack (four game tickets and a $25 Save-on-Foods gift card for $50) will continue to be offered exclusively at Save-on-Foods locations in Chilliwack, Promontory and Garrison Village for the first round of BCHL playoffs. However, the pack must be redeemed for games that are currently on sale. Vouchers are not available, nor is the pack transferable to future playoff games or next season.
- To celebrate the 2019 regular season champions, everything in the Chiefs Game Night Store will be $19 or less, excluding jerseys, during our Celebration Sale on Friday, March 1st and Saturday, March 2nd.
