SPOKANE CHIEFS: Former Chief Bartman U of C Dinos Captain

CALGARY – Brett Bartman, a defenseman on the Chiefs 2008 Memorial Cup Champion team and three-year player for Spokane, was recently named captain of the University of Calgary men’s hockey team. Bartman is in his fourth season anchoring the blue line for the Dinos, who have jumped out to a 10-0-0 record to begin their season. 

Bartman dressed for 77 games for the Dinos prior to this season, tallying 13 points and a +11 rating. Through ten games in this year’s campaign, he has three points and a +7 rating.

Bartman played 192 regular season games with the Chiefs from 2007-10, recording 34 career points, 124 PIM and a career +52 rating. 

After his junior career ended as a 20-year-old in 2010, Bartman utilized his education package provided to him by the Spokane Chiefs to attend the University of Calgary, where he is now studying kinesiology.  A player will receive a year’s worth of education cost for each season on they play in the Western Hockey League.  Over 300 WHL graduate players attend post-secondary institutions of full WHL Scholarships each year, at over 60 different institutions across North America.

Bartman also participated as a guest instructor at the Chiefs’ annual fall camp earlier this year.
