Hard-hitting forward secures full-time role

Ryan Roseboom impressed in limited action with the Chilliwack Chiefs last season, and will be a regular in 2015-16.

After serving as an affiliate player with the Chilliwack Chiefs last season, 19 year old Ryan Roseboom will be a full-time forward in 2015-16.

The Terrace native spent most of last season with the Osoyoos Coyotes of the junior B Kootenay International Hockey League, where he had 16 goals and 44 points in 45 games.

Roseboom had one goal and several bone-crushing hits in five Chiefs appearances, including two playoff games.

“He will bring a physical element to our team as he demonstrated in the playoffs,” said Chiefs head coach and general manager Jason Tatarnic. “He skates well and we expect him to be hard player for opponents to play against. He brings an honest work ethic to the rink every day.”
