Trail and Chilliwack Hook Up on 1-for-1 Trade:

The Trail Smoke Eaters weren’t done after trading goaltender Riley Corbin to Whitecourt. The Smoke Eaters also traded 20-year-old defenseman Cody Bardock to the Chilliwack Chiefs for 17-year-old forward Brandon Volpe and future considerations.

Bardock was picked up by Trail from the AJHL’s Sherwood Park Crusaders back on October 18 and got into 11 games with the Smokies, posting five points. He’ll add some major size to the Chiefs blueline.

Volpe has played in 25 career BCHL games, despite not yet turning 18, which he will on December 18th. This is his first season as a regular player after playing six games with Chilliwack as an AP last season.

Here’s the Chiefs release regarding the trade:

The Chilliwack Chiefs have acquired 20 year old defenseman Cody Bardock from the Trail Smoke Eaters in exchange for 18 year old forward Brandon Volpe and future considerations.

Bardock has four goals and one assist in 11 games with the Smoke Eaters this season. The native of Lethbridge also has Junior A experience with the Prince George Spruce Kings and Brooks and Sherwood Park of the AJHL.

“I’m excited about playing in Chilliwack and playing for the coaches there,” said Baddock. “It’s a great organization with an incredible group of fans.”

Baddock is expected to arrive in Chilliwack on Friday.

The Chiefs would like to thank Brandon Volpe for his commitment both on and off the ice and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
