Broncos get top BCHL forward

Langley Chiefs Press Release

Veteran Langley Chiefs forward Trevor Elias has committed to attend Western Michigan University.

Elias, always known as one of the fastest players in the British Columbia Hockey League, has really become a dynamic offensive force playing on a line with Milos Gordic (Michigan Tech recruit) and Derek Grant (Michigan State recruit) this season. Before a freak injury sidelined him for just over a month, the Calgary native was on pace for 100 points in his third year with the Chiefs. In his return to the Langley line up on Dec. 29, Elias put up two assists and his impact was immediate.

“Trevor is someone who I don’t think gets the credit he deserves for everything he does,” said Langley associate coach Barry Wolff, who thought the scholarship was overdue. “For two years, he has been used on the power play and penalty kill as well as seeing a ton of even strength ice – and he excels at both ends.”

Arguably the most exciting player in the BCHL, Elias will take his game-breaking skills with him to play for the Broncos next season. Western Michigan is coached by former professional hockey player Jim Culhane, who has coached the Broncos for ten seasons. On behalf of the entire Langley Chiefs organization, we would like to congratulate Trevor on this achievement and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.
