Chiefs captain signs with Seawolves

Chilliwack Chiefs blueliner Eric Roberts is going north to Alaska next season, joining the Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves.

Chilliwack Chiefs captain Eric Roberts has found his next hockey home, committing to the University of Alaska-Anchorage.

The Abbotsford native announced Monday on Twitter that he will join the Seawolves for the 2015-16 season. Alaska-Anchorage plays in the 10 team Western Collegiate Hockey Association, squaring off against Michigan Tech, Minnesota State, Ferris State, Northern Michigan, Lake Superior State, Bemidji State, Bowling Green and Alabama-Huntsville.

The Seawolves recruit heavily from the western junior A leagues, and this year’s roster includes nine BCHL grads.

Roberts is finishing up his third full season with the Chiefs. In 164 career regular season games to date the 19 year old has five goals, 47 points and 147 penalty minutes.

The six-foot-two blueliner will be leading his current  team into the playoffs starting March 3.
