Chilliwack – The Chilliwack Chiefs announced the commitment of 2005-born forward Nico Grabas for the 2022-23 BCHL season. Grabas, the younger brother of Chiefs forward Luca Grabas, comes to the Chiefs from the Burnaby Winter Club Academy, where he is coached by Mike Santorelli, and former Chilliwack Bruin Mark Santorelli. So far this season, Grabas has put up 4 goals and 4 assists while being a consistent contributor at both ends of the rink.

“After attending main camp this past September I knew Chilliwack was an organization I wanted to be a part of.” Said the talented 5’10” forward. “From the players, coaches, staff, and fans the Chiefs are a first-class organization. I can’t wait to get started next season.”
