Chilliwack – The Chilliwack Chiefs have transferred the CJHL playing rights of (99) goaltender Daniel Chenard to the Wenatchee Wild in exchange for future considerations. Chenard, a native of Waterloo, Ontario, had an extremely successful tenure in Chilliwack and won the RBC National Championship with the Chiefs in 2018. Last season after his return from off-season surgery, Chenard registered an impressive 13 wins in 18 games to go along with a 0.913 save % and a 2.70 GAA. Chenard was absolutely outstanding for the Chiefs in the playoffs and played a massive role in the Chiefs 3-0 series comeback against the Langley Rivermen.
“Daniel has been a big part of our organization over the last few years and we can’t thank him enough. His leadership and professionalism was a big reason why we were able to become 2018 National Champions. Being one of the top goalies in the league we know he will have success this season before he heads off to school,” said Chiefs Head Coach and General Manager Brian Maloney before adding, “The Chilliwack Chiefs organization thanks Daniel for all of his contributions and wishes him nothing but success moving forward.”
