PENTICTON, BC – The Penticton Vees are proud to announce that veteran forward Chris Klack will return to the club for the 2017-2018 Campaign.
Klack, a 20-year-old forward from Georgetown, Ontario joined the Vees last season from Muskegon of the USHL. In 58 games with the Vees, Klack scored 13 goals and added 34 assists for 47 points. Klack’s production took off in the playoffs where he posted 18 points in 20 games in helping the Vees win the Fred Page Cup in dramatic fashion over the Chilliwack Chiefs in 7 games.
Vees president, head coach & general manager Fred Harbinson immediately named Klack an alternate captain, joining Grant Cruikshank and Owen Sillinger on the Vees leadership group for next season. Harbinson noted that a final alternate captain would be named during the clubs training camp in August.
“Chris was an integral part of our success last season, especially as the playoffs went on, his leadership skills became evident, not only to our staff, but the players as well. We’re excited to have Chris back in the fold joining a strong group of returning players, as well as incoming players” said Harbinson.
