The Chilliwack Chiefs have announced the commitment of defenseman Carter Cochrane for the 2013-2014 season.

Cochrane, from Kamloops B.C., played for the Kootenay International Junior Hockey Leagues, Golden Rockets, during the 2012-2013 season.

Last season he scored nine goals and 12 assists in 34 games and added three goals and 11 assists in 10 playoff games.
