Chiefs make move for Trail blueliner

The Chilliwack Chiefs have added a veteran defenceman in a trade with the BCHL's Trail Smoke Eaters.

The Chilliwack Chiefs made a move Friday to fix their leaky D, acquiring 20-year-old blueliner Cody Bardock from the Trail Smoke Eaters.

To get him, the Chiefs dealt 18-year-old forward Brandon Volpe and future considerations.

Bardock, a Lethbridge native, collected four goals and five points with the Smokies this year. He played for the Prince George Spruce Kings in 2011-12, and previously skated for two AJHL teams, the Brooks Bandits and Sherwood Park Crusaders.

He played his first two games for Chilliwack on the weekend, suiting up for road games in Penticton and Langley.
