The life of a Chiefs hockey player involves responsibilities beyond hockey. As with all WHL clubs, the Chiefs have a strong commitment to education, working hard in the classroom to prepare all players for a potential post-secondary education utilizing their WHL scholarship.

Starring for the Chiefs both on the ice and in the classroom this season was rookie forward Reed Jacobson, earning the organization’s 2019-20 Scholastic Player of the Year award.

A 17-year-old from Swift Current, Sask., Jacobson took courses in Anatomy, Chemistry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus and English. During his first semester, he averaged over 99% combined, earning top marks across the board.

On the ice, Jacobson scored his first career point on October 4 versus Seattle and followed with his first goal on October 12 versus Victoria. He scored twice versus the Regina Pats on January 18, earning the game’s first star honors.

In total, the speedy winger picked up four goals and seven assists for 11 points in 50 games played, posting an impressive +9 rating.
