Chiefs find replacement for departed Datz

After sending Mitchell Datz to the Brockville Braves last week, the Chiefs acquired David Poirier from the Braves this week.

The Chilliwack Chiefs have found a new backup, acquiring 19 year old David Poirier from the Central Canadian Hockey League’s Brockville Braves.

The Braves are the same team the Chiefs sent Mitchell Datz to last week after the goaltender requested a trade. Future considerations were the return in each situation, making this, essentially, a straight-up swap of netminders.

Poirier struggled in his time with the Braves.

A six-foot 170 pound native of Kirkland, QC, he appeared in 17 games.

Poirier won eight with a goals-against average of 4.04 and a save percentage of .864.

He should be on the bench backing up Aidan Pelino when the Chiefs host the Prince George Spruce Kings tonight at Prospera Centre (7 p.m.).
