Netminding help on the way for Chiefs

The Chilliwack Chiefs finally made a move to address goaltending woes, picking up Spencer Tremblay from the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

The Chilliwack Chiefs have made a move in net, picking up 19-year-old goalie Spencer Tremblay.

Tremblay was playing with the Waywayseecappo Wolverines of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. The Chiefs got him for future considerations.

“We have had a disappointing start to the season and have particularly struggled in our own end,” said Chiefs general manager and head coach Harvey Smyl. “We felt we needed to make a change within our hockey club. Spencer comes to us highly recommended and from all reports is a very solid goaltender.”

In a separate transaction, the Chiefs went first-year defenceman T.J. Roche to the USPHL Islanders Hockey Club for future considerations.

Both of Chilliwack’s incumbent goaltenders, Lyndon Stanwood and Josh Halpenny, were in the lineup Saturday night as Chilliwack hosted the Surrey Eagles.
