2. Brenden Kichton – The Spokane Chiefs defenseman was also invited to the Canada’s Junior Team Selection Camp and celebrated with another solid offensive week. The Spruce Grove, Alta, native scored six points (3g/3a) in four games dating back to a Nov. 30 5-2 victory over the Red Deer Rebels. The Chiefs went 2-1-1 this week and Kichton made a strong case to be considered for the World Juniors. He now has 27 points (6g/21a) in 25 games.
