Witala Signs ATO Agreement with Toronto Marlies
Prince George, B.C. – Hometown boy Chase Witala has signed an Amateur Try Out (ATO) contract with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.
Witala just completed his WHL career as the all-time Prince George Cougar franchise leader in goals (120) and points (239).
This past year he sniped 39 goals and added 40 assists and was named team MVP and a second-team WHL Western Conference all-star.
Witala was also a co-winner of the Cougars 3-Stars Selections Award this year with Ty Edmonds.
“Chase has always been someone I could trust to put in the effort required,” says Cougars coach Mark Holick. “That effort was rewarded today. I’m a very proud coach.”
Witala is the second Cougar to sign an ATO in the past few days. Jansen Harkins signed an ATO with the Manitoba Moose on Saturday.
