The Chilliwack Chiefs are excited to announce that Abram Wiebe has been selected to represent the team at the BCHL’s 3-on-3 outdoor All-Star Tournament on Jan. 21 in Penticton.
Wiebe is part of the initial 18 skaters the league announced this morning.
The first 18 were selected via a poll with all 18 Head Coaches from across the league.
The Chiefs captain currently leads his team with 17 points (5 goals / 12 assists) from the blue line in 16 games. The Vegas Golden Knights prospect is also ranked 5th among defencemen in league scoring, just two points from the leader.
To fill out the rest of the tournament roster, an additional six skaters and all four goalie spots will be determined by a fan vote, starting Monday, Nov. 21.
The format for the tournament is:
- Played on a newly built outdoor rink in Downtown Penticton
- Four teams of six skaters and one goalie (two teams per conference)
- Round robin format
- Top two teams faceoff in the championship game
The All-Stars will also participate in a skills competition earlier in the day with events including hardest shot, accuracy and more.
The process for the fan vote to fill out the remaining roster spots, as well as the list players eligible for the vote, will be unveiled at 10 a.m. on Monday morning.
