The Chilliwack Chiefs are excited to announce the acquisition of veteran defenceman Anthony Allepot from the Pentiction Vees in exchange for future considerations.
Allepot, 20, played four seasons with the Val-d’Or Foreurs in the QMJHL before coming to the BCHL for the start of this year. In 27 games with the Vees, the 6’3”, 191-pound defenceman has netted 11 points.
With the Chiefs battling injuries so far this season, it was important to the coaching staff to continue to strengthen their D-core.
“We are obviously really excited to add Anthony to our group. He is a mobile, athletic defender who will add to the already strong depth we have on our back end as we pursue a championship this season,” said Chiefs Associate Head Coach/Assistant GM Brad Rihela.
Welcome to Chilliwack, Anthony!
