On joining the Chiefs: “I’m really looking forward to being a part of this great organization and getting the season going. I know the BCHL is a very competitive league and the Chiefs are regarded as one of the top franchises to play for. I’m grateful for the opportunity.”

Tatarnic on Sinclair: “Mark has been a proven winner for Caledonia and we feel he can do the same for us. All he has done the last two seasons is win and we are happy to give him the chance to do the same for us.
