Chilliwack Chiefs create roster room with Cole Poliziani deal

The BCHL team traded the 20 year old Ontario native to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

With all the players coming into the organization, someone was going to have to leave the Chilliwack Chiefs.

That someone is Cole Poliziani, who has been traded to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

Chilliwack gets ‘future considerations’ for the 20 year old forward, which usually means the receiving team is writing a cheque.

Poliziani would have faced an uphill climb to make the roster in the team’s Royal Bank Cup year, with the Chiefs allowed to carry just six 20 year olds.

The Ontario native collected 14 goals and 27 points in 52 games last year. He showed flashes of potential, included a five goals in two games outburst in mid-January.

But the bowling ball forward struggled and had his ice-time pulled back in the playoffs, posting just five points (two goals) in 23 outings.
