Chase Edwards will join former Kamloops Storm linemate Tyler Jackson on the TRU WolfPack for the next B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.
Edwards, who had 83 points, including 45 goals, with the junior B Storm last season, has signed with the WolfPack. He is the fourth recruit to sign with TRU — Jackson, Anthony Delong and Brennan Wright, all forwards, are the others.
Edwards and Jackson have been teammates since their minor hockey days, and played on a line with the Storm in 2011-12. Edwards, a Kamloops native and Sa-Hali grad, hopes to get into TRU’s natural resources and sciences program.
“Once I found out (Jackson) was coming here, it made the decision to commit to the WolfPack even easier,” Edwards said in a press release. “We are good friends and grew up together. Last year, he helped me get a lot of goals because of his great passing skills.”
