BURNABY, BC — SFU Hockey is proud to announce Calgary Canucks defenceman Jason Chu as the newest member of the 2021/22 recruiting class.
“I would describe myself as a two-way puck moving defenseman. I like to create turn overs and transition pucks quick up the ice as well as jump up in the rush as much as possible,” said Chu, who hails from Coquitlam.
In his first season of full-time Junior A hockey in 2018/19, the 6’1” defenceman won the Fred Page Cup with the BCHL’s Prince George Spruce Kings, after an early season trade from the Surrey Eagles.
Moving to the AJHL next season, Chu had four goals and 20 points in 53 games split between the Grande Prairie Storm and the Calgary Canucks.
He capped off his junior career with a goal and six points in 14 games with the Canucks in the pandemic shortened 2020/21 season.
Chu intends to study business at SFU.
“My main goals for the season are to help the program win and be an impactful player whenever I step on the ice,” he said.
Chu joins fellow AJHL alumnus defenceman Cameron Chin as part of SFU’s 2021/22 recruiting class.
“Jason’s obviously a really smooth skating defenceman, good size, he’s probably going to be a guy that anchors our blue line for years to come, as well as Cam,” said SFU head coach Mark Coletta. “He definitely has the pedigree to be a good defenceman in our league.”
