Chip was never a fast skater. The injury may have delayed his development but he was never fast so we will never know if it hindered his development. His top end speed is ok and he is very smart so he should do fine. Hopefully he has worked on his acceleration. I would love to see him play with Moen and Sergie or Maxpac. Some points from the bottom line would be great.

Chip suffered a devastating Achilles injury in junior which he somehow played through for a while, but it really hindered his development. You cant control freak things like that as a scout.
Can't help you with the game time, I'm afraid. You'd think someone would make that information available somewhere. As for Kyle, Chipchura is a captain. Although I don't know where he is for sure, I hear Kelowna is known for its captains, maybe start by looking there?
i tried to find out said info as you suggested but only ran into a bunch of ladies who kept going on and on about some gorgeous guy... i couldnt make head or tails out of it so i gave up... anymore suggestions?!
he may have not have been fast per se in jr but he wasnt one to necessarily rely on his speed as opposed to his hockey sense/brains/anticipation, where that injury comes in however is it took away from what speed he did have to begin with and made it that much more difficult for him to utilize his strengths properly (at least it hindered his development in regards to that).
