Chase is a true team player and puts the needs of his team and teammates above his own with pride. He guides the younger and older players on the team, always setting a good example with his hard work and his willingness to volunteer for community events. Not only does he himself, volunteer in the community, he also encourages his teammates to get involved in various community efforts.
Chase has said his community outreach changes all the time depending on what is happening in the community but he tries to lend a hand at as many different opportunities as possible. Together Chase and his teammates have been volunteering their time in local elementary schools with math classes and reading sessions. Chase eagerly attends surrounding area minor hockey league practices and provides any help or coaching the younger players may need.
Chase goes above and beyond expectations of those around him and always strives for excellence. His work ethic, positive attitude heart, hustle, and natural leadership qualities serve him well both in and away from the game of hockey.
