With only two regulation losses throughout the season, the Chiefs will head into next week’s KIJHL playoffs as the number one seed as they officially begin the race for the league’s championship, the Cyclone Taylor. The Chiefs look to be headed towards a first round match up against the Osoyoos Coyotes.
With first place locked down and the playoff’s starting next week, the Chiefs will relax a little as the full conclusion of their impressive regular season comes Saturday night against their playoff-bound rival Princeton Posse.
