Chilliwack Chiefs add forward A.J. Lacroix from Delta Hockey Academy

Lacroix will be 16 years old next season, but is already a big-bodied forward at six-foot-four

The Chilliwack Chiefs have added a big forward to the prospect pool with the commitment of A.J. Lacroix.

The 2005-born player is currently with the Delta Hockey Academy U17 Prep Program. Last season, the six-foot-four and 194 pound winger posted two points per game (60 in 30) playing with the West Van Bantam Prep program. Lacroix attended camp last season with the Chiefs and left a positive impression on the coaching staff.

“We are extremely confident that with A.J’s maturity, skill-set, and willingness to improve, he will be a key part of our program next season despite his age,” said Chiefs hockey boss Brian Maloney. “We are proud to welcome A.J and his family to our organization and look forward to helping continue his development next season.”
