Teleguine, born in 2002, is a five-foot-10 and 185 pound power forward who is advertised as possessing top-end speed and skill.

He will arrive in Chilliwack with an NCAA scholarship to Northeastern University already secured.

“This is a big day for the Chilliwack Chiefs,” said hockey boss Brian Maloney. “Sasha is a player that we have been scouting heavily over the course of the past two seasons. The pace that he plays the game at will complement our team dynamic nicely. He drives possession and can make plays at top speed.

“We are very confident he will become a fan-favourite here in Chilliwack.”
