The Chilliwack Chiefs are extremely excited to announce the signing of 2006-born defenceman Kenyon McIsaac for the 2023/24 BCHL season.
McIsaac spent the majority of last season with the Port Alberni Bombers of the VIJHL. In 26 games, he scored four goals and ten assists from the blue line.
“Kenyon will give you 100% effort everywhere he is, whether it’s in the gym, practice, or suiting up for game time. He will bring depth to our experienced D-core but will be foaming at the mouth for his opportunity,” said Head Coach and General Manager Brian Maloney.
McIsaac will be a familiar name to Chiefs fans. His Dad, Brent, played two seasons in Chilliwack and won the Fred Page Cup with the team in 2002.
“Now Kenyon has the chance to carve his name into this organization. We want kids who understand the value of being in this organization. No one wants it more than Kenyon,” said Maloney.
Brent says that he is extremely excited for his son to join the team.
“My time in Chilliwack was the greatest period I experienced in my hockey journey. The success and championships on the ice, the relationships with teammates, and being a part of a first-class organization in an amazing community full of passionate fans are memories I still carry with me today. We’re looking forward to watching him and his teammates go through these same experiences,” he said.
Kenyon echoed similar feelings.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join an organization like Chilliwack, who have a proven track record of winning and moving players on to the next level. My Dad is an alumnus and I can’t wait to put on the jersey for the first time. I’m very excited to get started with Coach Maloney and the rest of the staff and to meet my new teammates and compete for a BCHL Championship,” said McIsaac.
Welcome to the Chiefs family Kenyon!
