Chilliwack – The Chilliwack Chiefs announced they have acquired 2000-born forward Nicholas Cherkowski from the Wenatchee Wild. Cherkowski, a native of Vernon, BC, comes to the Chiefs with a commitment to Merrimack College and a season of BCHL experience with the Vernon Vipers (2018-19) and the Wenatchee Wild during the 2019-20 season.
Cherkowski is a 6’3, 190 pound right shot forward that will help the depth of the Chiefs forward group down the stretch of this BCHL season. “We are really happy to add Nick to our group today,” said Chiefs Associate Coach and AGM Brad Rihela. “Nick is a player that brings with him fantastic character, as well as a good ability to protect pucks and drive defenders back with his size and speed.”
Cherkowski is expected to arrive in Chilliwack early this week, and should join his teammates for practice Tuesday at the Chilliwack Coliseum.
