The Chilliwack Chiefs have acquired forward Darien Craighead (97) from the Cowichan Valley Capitals in exchange for defenseman Carter Cochrane (96).

Craighead, in his third BCHL season has a goal and an assist in four games with the Capitals this season. Last season with the Capitals he had 19 goals and 23 assists in 42 games. He has committed to Northern Michigan University for next season.

“We felt we needed another forward with a scoring touch,” said Chiefs General Manager and Head Coach Jason Tatarnic. “We feel Craighead will provide that for us.  When you acquire a good player you have to give something up in return and unfortunately the price tag was Carter. We wish Carter all the best in Cowichan.”

Craighead is expected to be in the Chiefs lineup this weekend.

The Chiefs are in Surrey Friday night before returning to home ice to face the Penticton Vees Saturday night at Prospera Centre. Game time is 7pm.
