Chilliwack Chiefs add forward Jacques Bouquot

The Chilliwack Chiefs have bolstered their forward group with the acquisition of 18 year old Jacques Bouquot.

Bouquot comes to the Chiefs as a free agent from the Wenatchee Wild, where an ankle injury limited him to just five games.

Bouquot spent the last three seasons at Salisbury Prep School where he scored 28 goals and added 41 assists in 84 games.

He captained the Crimson Knights last season and his addition strengthens an already potent Chiefs offense that has scored 97 goals through the season’s first 27 games.

“As a staff we were looking to add a little more depth to our group,” said Chiefs hockey boss Brian Maloney. “We felt we owed it to this group, as they keep showing and proving to us that they want to play deep into playoffs this year.

“Adding someone like Jacques who works extremely hard on and off the ice will only help us as a group become a better team. Our plan as a staff is to help Jacques find his confidence again, surround him in our positive environment and allow him to enjoy the game we all love.”
