K-WINGS RECIEVE ALL-STAR DEFENSEMAN CHAD NYCHUK FROM CANUCKS (AHL)

Kalamazoo welcomes back 2023 ECHL All-Star to defensive corps via loan from Abbotsford.

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced the Abbotsford Canucks (AHL)  has loaned defenseman Chad Nychuk to the team on Tuesday.

Nychuk, 22, was named to the ECHL Western Conference All-Star team after a stellar first half of the 2022-23 season, posting 4 goals, 17 assists with just 10 penalty minutes in 36 games played for the K-Wings from October 13, 2022, thru January 22, 2023. 

The defenseman then suited up in 13 games for Abbotsford as a rookie, notching five assists in 13 games played last season.

The 6-foot 1-inch, 194-pound, Rossburn, Manitoba native scored 71-points (21g, 50a) for the Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL) in 2021-22, earning him a WHL (East) Second All-Star Team selection and an invite to the Vancouver Canucks (NHL) prospect development camp last fall.

Kalamazoo is back to action on Wednesday at 7 p.m. EST versus the Indy Fuel at Wings Event Center. 

It’s also a winning Wednesday & 269 Night. If the K-Wings win, you win free tickets to the next home weekday game. Come enjoy $2 beers & sodas, $6 wing baskets and get into the game for just $9 ($11 if purchased on gameday). Secure your tickets HERE.
