A member of the Spokane Chiefs has ensured that he’ll be going back to Cali for at least the next three years.
Chiefs forward Jaret Anderson-Dolan, a second-round selection of the Los Angeles Kings, signed a three-year entry-level deal with the two-time Stanley Cup champions Monday as he takes the next step forward with his hockey career.
Originally selected 14th overall by the Chiefs in the 2014 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft, Anderson-Dolan quickly became one of the top players in the tough U.S. Division last season.
After a five-game audition in 2014-15, the Calgary, Alta. native played 65 games with the Chiefs during the 2015-16 season, collecting 14 goals and 26 points. He followed up that performance with a full 72-game campaign in 2016-17, scoring 39 goals and 76 points. He has 43 penalty minutes in his 142 games of WHL regular season action. Of his 53 career WHL goals, 20 have come on the power play.
Anderson-Dolan has also appeared in seven WHL playoff games, scoring one goal and three points.
His performances were enough to convince the Kings to use the 41st selection on him in the NHL Draft this past June as one of 33 WHL players selected throughout the draft.
Anderson-Dolan has also represented Canada internationally. In 2015-16, he was an alternate captain for Canada White at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, where his team won gold. This past season, he once again suited up for Canada, this time at the IIHF World U18 Championships where Canada finished fourth.
