As is the case with most twins, the similarities don’t usually stop with appearances.
Like his 19-year-old brother, Chase Norrish plays on the blueline with the first-place Yorkton Terriers and like his sibling he is in his second season with the SJHL team.
What is eerie, to a degree, is both played in 56 games during their rookie campaign and both racked up the same offensive numbers – six goals and 11 assists.
He also played his midget hockey with the Beardy’s Blackhawks of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League and in 2010-11, like his brother, played three games for the Terriers.
Chase Norrish has also attended a Western Hockey League camp in Medicine Hat, but he is happy playing with the Terriers and keeping the door open for a college scholarship opportunity.
That is where the line is visible in the sand, however, as Chase has three goals and seven helpers in 27 games this year (Brady has 3-12-15 totals in 25 games) and although he would like to pursue the college route, going to an American college isn’t a priority.
“I’d like to stay in Canada if I can,” admits Norrish.
Having written his SAT and completed his Grade 12, Chase Norrish is focusing on hockey and hoping that his play on the ice will generate some interest from post-secondary institutions.
“I’m just taking it year by year,” says Norrish.
