The Chilliwack Chiefs are very proud to announce that forward Aaron Davidson has committed to play for the University of Waterloo Warriors next season.
While he may be known around the BCHL for his 6’9, 250 lbs pound frame, he has quickly become a fan favourite in Chilliwack because of his work ethic and love of the community.
“We’re extremely proud of Aaron. He’s come into this organization, put his head down with an incredible work ethic while asking many questions, and has been rewarded for it. He’s fought off a lot of people telling him that he’ll never be able to advance his game to the next level. Good things happen to good people, and he’s one of the best to come through this program,” said Chiefs Head Coach and General Manager Brian Maloney. “We look forward to continuing to help Aaron further his development on and off the ice. So proud of you Aaron.”
Davidson’s reputation as a leader caught the attention of Waterloo Head Coach Brian Bourque.
“We are excited to add Aaron to our roster. We know he is a great teammate who comes with a reputation of being a hard-working, driven individual. We feel he has a ton of upside and are excited to see his growth over the next few years,” he said.
An Ontario native, Davidson says that after a few seasons of playing in Florida and BC, he is excited to be able to play so close to family and friends.
“I’m very excited to become a Warrior and play for a school so close to home. I’ve only heard and seen great things from the University of Waterloo. This year with the Chiefs has helped me not only grow as a player but as a person. I want to thank my parents, family, and friends for all their support. As well, thank you to all of the coaches I have had throughout the past few years and to the entire Chiefs organization,” said Davidson.
