Chilliwack Chiefs trade Carter Wilkie for Trevor Adams

The Chiefs add a 20 year old forward with speed and skill, but trade away a fan favourite.

The Chilliwack Chiefs have traded 19 year old forward Carter Wilkie to the West Kelowna Warriors in exchange for 20 year old forward Trevor Adams.

Wilkie, a Calgary kid, was in his second season as a member of the Chiefs. He’d collected two goals and 14 points in 27 games.

He had 12 goals and 36 points during his rookie campaign and was a player who bought into what the franchise was doing in the community.

“We had a lot of conversations about what is in the best interests for Carter Wilkie to go after a scholarship,” said Chiefs head coach and general manager Brian Maloney. “Originally when teams were inquiring about Carter we weren’t interested in making a move, but after some careful consideration we decided that this move was in the best interests of both parties. I want to sincerely thank Carter for everything he has done for the Chilliwack Chiefs organization and the city of Chilliwack. He is a young man with amazing character, and I wish him nothing but the utmost success moving forward.”

Trevor Adams hails from Muskegon, MI that will immediately inject offensive flair and speed to the Chiefs lineup.

The Union College commit has five goals and nine points in 21 games with West K. this season.

Playing for Salmon Arm in 2018-19, Adams put up 17 goals and 40 points.

“Trevor is a player we have done a lot of homework on,” said Maloney. “Most importantly, his character is off the charts and he has been loved by teammates and coaches everywhere he’s been. Trevor is a player we feel will immediately help us offensively, and we look forward to adding his speed and dynamic ability to our lineup as we move into the second half of our season.”
