Former Chief Named University of Calgary Captain

Brett Bartman, a defenseman on the Chiefs 2008 Memorial Cup Champion team and three-year player for Spokane, was recently named captain of the University of Calgary men’s hockey team. Bartman is in his fourth season anchoring the blue line for the Dinos, who have jumped out to a 10-0-0 record to begin their season.

Bartman dressed for 77 games for the Dinos prior to this season, tallying 13 points and a +11 rating. Through ten games in this year’s campaign, he has three points and a +7 rating.

Bartman played 192 regular season games with the Chiefs from 2007-10, recording 34 career points, 124 PIM and a career +52 rating.

After his junior career ended as a 20-year-old in 2010, Bartman utilized his education package provided to him by the Spokane Chiefs to attend the University of Calgary, where he is now studying kinesiology. A player will receive a year’s worth of education cost for each season on they play in the Western Hockey League. Over 300 WHL graduate players attend post-secondary institutions of full WHL Scholarships each year, at over 60 different institutions across North America.

Bartman also participated as a guest instructor at the Chiefs’ annual fall camp earlier this year.

Chiefs to Participate in Avista Heroes Program

The Spokane Chiefs are proud to team up with Avista to visit Holmes Elementary School on Wednesday, November 13th at 10:30 a.m. to present a program on the importance of setting goals. Chiefs’ players will use examples from their lives on how goal setting and the importance of working hard to meet them has helped them become the players and people that they are today.

Avista will donate 200 undated vouchers for Holmes Elementary staff to use as incentives for school work, attendance and behavior. The Chiefs and Avista will also provide glow lights to the school.

All media is invited to attend.

Players that will be attending are:

MIKE AVIANI – A four-year veteran of the Chiefs who was selected as one of the team’s alternate captains. He is currently second on the team in scoring with 18 goals and 33 points in 21 games.

CARTER PROFT – Another alternate captain who is playing in his third season in the WHL. He played in all 72 games last season and led the Western Hockey League with 193 penalty minutes last year.

JASON FRAM – An 18-year-old from South Delta, British Columbia who is in his third season as a Spokane Chief. Fram has scored two goals and 18 points in 21 games this season.

The Chiefs return after a three-game road trip to host the Prince George Cougars at Spokane Arena on Friday, November 15 for Washington’s Lottery Night.
