Chilliwack Chiefs star Abram Wiebe will play in the BCHL’s 60th Anniversary Celebration All-Star Tournament.

The junior A league announced 18 skaters for the Coastal and Interior conferences Thursday (Nov. 17). Wiebe is one of nine players named to the Coastal conference squad which will hit the ice Jan. 21 in Penticton. Players were selected through a poll of BCHL head coaches, including Chiefs hockey boss Brian Maloney.

Wiebe is off to a strong start in his third season in Chilliwack. He’s fifth among all BCHL defencemen in scoring, with five goals and 17 points in 16 games. His point-per-game rate of 1.06 is second best, trailing only Surrey’s Tate Taylor (1.19).

Wiebe had two goals and 31 points in 54 games last season.
