The Chiefs announced that defenceman Jeff Rayman has been released from the team.
The 19-year-old defenceman from Fernie, British Columbia played in 86 games in two seasons with Spokane, scoring 1 goal, 7 assists and a -8 rating. He did not partake in both of Spokane's playoff runs in his two-year career.
Originally acquired by the Chiefs in 2011, Rayman played with the Fernie Ghostriders of the KIJHL in 2012-13. In 49 games, Rayman scored 3 goals, 7 assists and 86 penalty minutes. Prior to joining the Ghostriders, he played two years of midget hockey with the Cranbrook Ice Bantam AA of the SCABL. In two seasons with the Ice, he scored 4 goals and 29 assists.
As of this report, Rayman's next assignment is yet to be determined. He's eligible to be picked up by any of the other 21 WHL clubs or potentially exercise his option to attend college or play in another junior hockey league.
Rayman's release leaves the Chiefs with the league maximum of 25 players (3 goaltenders, 8 defencemen and 14 forwards).
