Ex-Chilliwack Chief joining Corsairs

Jaret Babych will play NCAA division three hockey next season with the UMass-Dartmouth Corsairs.

Chilliwack Chiefs forward Jaret Babych will play NCAA division three hockey at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth next season.

Babych joins the Corsairs, a team which competes in the Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference (MASCAC).

Babych’s new team went 5-13 last season, finishing last in the seven-team circuit, but they were the conference tournament champions in 2013.

The other teams in the MASCAC are the Salem State Vikings, Plymouth State Panthers, Westfield State Owls,  Framingham State Rams, Fitchburg State Falcons and Worcester State Lancers.

Babych, the son of ex-National Hockey Leaguer Dave Babych, played three full seasons in Chilliwack from 2011-2014.

In 151 regular season games he collected 30 goals, 22 assists and 109 penalty minutes.

Babych is currently the lone BCHL graduate committed to the Corsairs.

Other Chiefs from last year’s roster who’ve found NCAA homes include Mathieu Tibbet (Merrimack), Zach Diamantoni (Northern Michigan) and Josh Halpenny (Liberty).
