Blessing dealt to Wolves

The BCHL Chilliwack Chiefs sent forward Chris Blessing to the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League's La Ronge Ice Wolves today.

The Chilliwack Chiefs acquired 20-year-old forward Jordan Ethier from the La Ronge Ice Wolves (Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League) Wednesday  in exchange for the playing rights to Chris Blessing plus future considerations.

Ethier, a Quebec product, has recorded eight goals and 14 assists along with 28 penalty minutes in 26 games this season.

Chiefs general manager Harvey Smyl says the six-foot-two and 185 pound left-shooting forward brings a combination of assets to Chilliwack.

“From all reports Jordan plays with skill and determination and is responsible in his own end,” Smyl said.

As for Ethier he is excited to becoming out west and will join the team in time for practice on Thurdsay.

“I have heard Chilliwack is a great place to play, and I am looking forward to playing for the Chiefs,” he said.
