Two prospects commit to Chilliwack Chiefs

The younger brother of Chilliwack Chiefs forward Tanner Cochrane plans on playing for the junior A BCHL franchise this fall.

The Chilliwack Chiefs announced the commitment of two players Tuesday, with Kyle Westeringh and Carter Cochrane signing on for 2013-14.

Westeringh, a 1996-born Chilliwack native, spent last season with the BC Major Midget Hockey League’s Fraser Valley Thunderbirds. The forward collected 11 goals and nine assists in 25 games.

Westeringh also got his feet wet in the BCHL, suiting up for three Chiefs games.

Cochrane, a 1996-born defenceman from Kamloops, is the brother of Chiefs forward Tanner Cochrane.

He spent last season with the KIJHL junior B Golden Rockets.

Cochrane showed some offensive flair, tallying nine goals and 12 assists in 34 regular season games.

He added another three goals and 14 points in 10 playoff games, and appeared in one Chiefs game.

“Both Kyle and Carter impressed our scouting staff during the season and at our spring camp,” said Chiefs general manager and head coach Harvey Smyl. “We like the way they play and we believe they have the character it takes to be a Chilliwack Chief.”
