EDMUNDSTON, NB – The Edmundston Blizzard traded forward Chad Wilson and a conditional 2nd round pick in the 2021 midget draft to the Valley Wildcats in return for 2nd and 7th round picks in the June 2020 draft.
A 20-year-old player, Chad Wilson is from Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, an hour drive from Berwick where the Wildcats play.
Wilson has just completed his second campaign in the Maritime Junior A League, and it was, by far, his best. He took part in the Blizzard’s 52 games, recording 12 goals and 20 assists for 32 points. The previous season, in Pictou Couty, he had 2 goals and 6 assists in 44 games.
The Blizzard acquired Wilson and Isaac Chapman on June 15, 2019 in a major transaction that sent Maxime Grandmaison and Samuel LeBlanc to the Pictou County Weeks Crushers.
“We wish Chad all the best in his next season. He’s a player who has shown intensity in each of our games. He displayed consistency throughout the season, “said Blizzard president André Lebel.
