All-time Chilliwack Chiefs great Jordan Kawaguchi will be on national television this weekend as his North Dakota Fighting Hawks take on the Colorado College Tigers.
The game will be broadcast on TSN2 with a 5 p.m. PST start.
In his second season at North Dakota, Kawaguchi has developed into a top offensive player, leading the team in scoring with three goals and 12 points in 19 games. The Abbotsford native is closing in on the personal bests he set as a freshman last season when he tallied five goals and 19 points in 38 matches.
