The Chiefs continue to add to their 2017-18 roster with the acquisition of 18 year old forward Ryan Miotto from the Welland Jr. Canadians of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League in exchange for future considerations.
Miotto was the GOJHL’s Rookie of the Year last season, putting up 27 goals and 44 assists in 48 games.
“Chilliwack is a great city, with loyal fans and a great coaching staff,” said Miotto. “I’m excited for the opportunity to play with and against great players. I look forward to developing both as a hockey player and a person while with the Chiefs.”
Miotto comes to Chilliwack having already secured an NCAA scholarship for Canisius College beginning in 2019.
Chiefs General Manager and Head Coach Jason Tatarnic says the Chiefs are adding a player who not only possesses an offensive skill set but also a player with character.
“Ryan is a skilled player that will add offense to our line-up. He has great vision and comes with junior experience. Obviously as a staff we want to add talent to our team but we know we are adding a high character. We are excited to have Ryan join our team and we are looking forward to getting him ready for Division one program in Canisius College.”
