Chilliwack Chiefs add scoring punch in Storm swap

Michael Clarke is coming to the Chiefs from the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Grand Prairie Storm.

Chilliwack Chiefs head coach/general manager Jason Tatarnic has made his first trade 0f the 2017-18 BCHL season.

The Chiefs dealt defenceman Sean Thomson to the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Grand Prairie Storm on Wednesday.

In return, Chilliwack gets scoring punch in the form of Michael Clarke.

The 19 year old can play center or the wing and had 31 goals and 61 points in 60 games last year. In five games to start this season Clarke tallied three goals and five points and was part of Grand Prairie’s leadership group.

Thomson falls into the ‘we barely knew ye’ category after playing just six games for the Chiefs.

The 19 year old blueliner was one of three players recruited from Kimball Union last summer. He collected one goal and six penalty minutes in his short run with Chilliwack.

The Chiefs still hold one empty roster spot, carrying 22 players when they are allowed 23.
