From a physical perspective there isn’t much to distinguish Chase Haygarth from his twin brother as Chase also stands 5-foot-11 and weighs in at 174 pounds. Statistically, there is little separation either as Chase had 54 points in 56 games with the Bombers a year ago while also chipping in with three points during the four-game sweep of Humboldt in the playoffs.

Chase, who is listed as a centerman, also isn’t scared to get in the dirty areas of the game as his 83 penalty minutes were among the team leaders in that category as well. This aspect, along with his offensive capabilities, aligns nicely with one of his personal goals “to be the toughest player to play against every night.”

Chase Haygarth, who like his brother hopes to continue playing hockey at the collegiate level once his junior career is finished, also spent two seasons with the AJHL’s Whitecourt Wolverines prior to being traded to Flin Flon 17 months ago. In 83 games over that span Chase recorded seven goals and 20 assists showing that the move to the Bombers benefited him nicely.

Chase’s development days in midget hockey followed the same path as his brother when as a 15-year-old he collected 45 points in 37 games with the minor midget Rage and one year later recorded 26 points in 33 games with the Midget AAA Bobcats.

Improved play, providing leadership and playing tough are personal goals Chase has set for himself this year and if he is successful in achieving all of those then he and his brother could possibly realize their shared goal of bringing a championship to Flin Flon.
