Martin to start tonight

Goaltender Chase Martin will get his first career WHL start on Friday night when the Chiefs travel to Cranbrook, BC to take on the Kootenay Ice.

Goaltender Chase Martin will get his first career WHL start on Friday night when the Chiefs travel to Cranbrook, BC to take on the Kootenay Ice.  The Chiefs and Ice will be playing a home-and-home series that will conclude on Saturday night in the Arena.

Martin and Michael Tadjdeh will be the goaltenders on record for the Chiefs this weekend as starter James Reid will be at home in Calgary, Alberta attending the funeral for his grandfather.

“Chase has worked real hard throughout the preseason and early part of the regular season and has earned this start on his own volition,” Chiefs coach Hardy Sauter said in a release.  “Our thoughts are with James and his family.”

Martin was originally a fifth round bantam selection of the Chiefs in the 2007 WHL draft and has made one appearance this season stopping 11 shots in 12 opportunities on October 3rd in Tri-City. Last season, Martin appeared in 27 games for the Big Country Energy Tigers in Medicine Hat in the AMHL and posted a 3.04 goals against and .902 save percentage.
