When the Spokane Chiefs’ season ended 10 days ago, it was, as always, emotional for the 20-year-olds whose Western Hockey League careers were officially over. “It’s pretty tough,” Tyler Johnson said. “These were the best years of my life. For them to be over is a shame. I’m really proud to be a Chief.”
Spokane Chiefs coach Don Nachbaur completed a triple play and Tyler Johnson was recognized as a class act when the Western Hockey League handed out its major awards in Calgary, Alberta, on Wednesday. Nachbaur received the Dunc McCallum Memorial Trophy as the Coach of the Year for the third time – each with a different team.
His last start was a shutout and his goals-against-average is second best in the Western Hockey League, but that might not be enough to get Mac Engel the start when the Western Hockey League playoffs start Friday.

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – At times, it must have seemed to Spokane goalie James Reid and his Prince George counterpart, Ty Rimmer, that they were in a shooting gallery – as the targets.

It says a lot about Tyler Alos that his hockey role model is Mike Fisher. “I saw an interview once, he was modest, humble, that’s what I like,” the young hockey player from Spokane said about the Ottawa Senators’ center. “He’s got his morals set, his faith, he works his (tail) off. He’s not the highest scorer on the team. He’s a character guy, team guy. He’s on all situations on the ice. I try to model my game off him.”
