Five Facts about his Season:
1) Klimchuk scored 19 goals for the second consecutive season, joining Andrew Mangiapane as the only player to do that over the past two seasons in Stockton.
2) His hot play this winter earned him a call up to the Calgary Flames, making his NHL debut on February 19 against the Boston Bruins.
3) The forward notched four game-winning goals this season, serving as one of Stockton’s top offensive threats all year long.
4) Klimchuk continued his dominance against the San Diego Gulls this season with 10 points in eight games, including six goals, two of which were game-winners. Last year the winger had seven goals and 11 points in 10 games against the Gulls.
5) Klimchuk was one of two recipients for the Stockton Heat Community Award, give to a player that leads the team’s pioneering community efforts. Klimchuk lead the way in the Heat’s new Get in The Game Read Program, making twelve visits to local schools. He also capped off our player appearances this spring with a memorable trip to the Tracy Boys and Girls Club!
Highlight of the Season:
Technically you could say Klimchuk had five game winners this season, as he had the final goal in Tracy, much to Luke Gazdic’s chagrin.
