Former Chilliwack Chiefs captain heads up Prospera Centre summer camps

Abbotsford native Eric Roberts is the lead instructor as camps get under way July 8.

Prospera Centre will have former Chilliwack Chiefs captain Eric Roberts as the lead on-ice instructor for all of its summer hockey camps.

The Abbotsford native played 180 regular season and playoff games with Chilliwack between the 2011-12 and 2014-15 BCHL seasons before moving on to the University of Alaska-Anchorage.

He played two seasons of NCAA Division 1 hockey while completing his Bachelor of Science degree with a specialization in Natural Science.

Starting in September, Roberts will be attending the School of Optometry and Vision Science at the University of Waterloo.

“We are thrilled to have Eric on board as our on-ice instructor,” said Barry Douglas, Prospera Centre’s Vice President of Business Operations. “Eric brings with him a wealth of hockey and coaching experience making him a perfect fit for the summer hockey programs we offer.”

Summer camps start July 8.
