Saints Beef Up Front End With Acquisition Of Chabot

(Spruce Grove, AB) – Spruce Grove Saints General Manager Rob Sklaruk announced today the club has acquired forward Kadyn Chabot from the Drayton Valley Thunder of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) in exchange for forward Cody Pisarczyk and a player development fee.

Chabot, an established veteran forward, joins the Saints after spending the previous five seasons splitting time between the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League (23 games) and the Drayton Valley Thunder of the AJHL, where he appeared in 176 games, compiling 145 points (70 goals, 75 assists) and 104 penalty minutes for the Thunder.

Prior to his junior career, the Lethbridge, Alberta native developed in his hometown with the Lethbridge Hurricanes U18AAA program. During the 2017-2018 season, Chabot put up 35 points in 32 games, leading his team to an Alberta Midget AAA Hockey League Championship, as well as a Bronze Medal at the 2018 Telus Cup.

The 20-year-old left-handed shooting forward is listed at 5’9”, 192 pounds and will join the Saints this week, prior to Friday night’s game vs. the Canmore Eagles.

General Manager Rob Sklaruk spoke about Chabot joining the team saying, “Kadyn will be a fantastic fit in Spruce Grove. He is a highly skilled forward who can score goals at crucial times of games. He is a powerful player who will immediately add a boost to our line up.”

An enthusiastic Chabot spoke about joining the Saints, saying, “I am extremely excited and honoured to be joining the Spruce Grove Saints organization. The Saints program has been very successful for years and I hope I can add to the already established culture and dynamic to further the success of the organization.”

The Saints would like to welcome Kadyn and the Chabot family to the organization.

The Saints would also like to thank Cody Pisarczyk for his time and dedication to the organization, and wish him the best of luck as a member of the Drayton Valley Thunder.

The Spruce Grove Saints are currently 12-4-1 this season and sit in first place in the AJHL’s North Division. The Saints are in the middle of a four-game road trip, facing off against the Canmore Eagles and the Okotoks Oilers this Friday and Saturday respectively, before returning home for a Nov 9th clash with the Grande Prairie Storm.
