Chilliwack Chiefs trade defenceman to Langley Rivermen

Colin Bernard has been dealt to a Mainland division rival in a BCHL deal for future considerations.

The Chilliwack Chiefs finalized a trade Wednesday, sending veteran defenceman Colin Bernard to a Mainland division rival.

The 20 year old blueliner goes to the Langley Rivermen for future considerations, leaving the Chiefs with a seven man defensive unit.

The only returnee is 17 year old Powell Connor.

Technically, Sean McCloskey played one game for Chilliwack as an affiliate player last year, but the rest of the blueline crew consists of newcomers Bryan Allbee, Sean Thomson, Nick Ormon, Matt Slick and Luke Albert.

Allbee is the lone 20 year old in that group.

Bernard logged 57 games for Chilliwack last season, putting seven goals, 31 points and 56 penalty minutes on the stat sheets. He played another 23 games in the Fred Page Cup playoffs, collecting two goals and nine points.
