Chiefs Select Forward Harrington with First Round Pick in 2022 WHL Prospects Draft
Spokane, Wash. - The Spokane Chiefs have selected forward Chase Harrington in the first round (8th overall) of the 2022 WHL Prospects Draft.
"We are thrilled to welcome Chase to Spokane and we believe he will perfectly complement our young group of players," said Chiefs Assistant General Manager Jim Hammett. "He has a very high hockey IQ and plays with high tempo and speed. He also brings a lot of character to his game. Combining his play with Berkly [Catton] will add a potent attack for us."
Harrington, a 6-foot, 160-pound winger from Prince George, B.C., spent the 2021-22 season with Delta Hockey Academy U15 Prep, where he racked up 50 points (32G-18A) in 29 games. He also played in five playoff games, posting 14 points on three goals and 11 assists.
Harrington also played with the Delta Hockey Academy U16 club, where he scored seven points (4G-3A) in six games, as well as six points (3G-3A) in three playoff games.
The 2007-born forward will join fellow recent first-round picks Berkly Catton (2021 - 1st overall), Saige Weinstein (2020 - 18th overall) and Graham Sward (2018 - 17th overall)
