HAILIFAX — The Halifax Thunderbirds announced on August 18, that they have signed forward, Chayton King, to a one-year contract.

King, 22, spent 2015-2019 in the Ontario Junior B Lacrosse League as a member of the Six Nations Rebels. With the Jr B Rebels, King tallied 237 points in 86 career regular-season games, and an additional 128 points in 51 career playoff appearances.

This summer, the righty forward from Six Nations suited up for the Jr A Arrows, posting 15 goals and 26 points in eight contests and earning All-Star honours in the process. While representing the West in the OJLL All-Star Game, King led the team in scoring with a goal and four assists.

Thunderbirds captain and Six Nations head coach, Cody Jamieson, had the unique opportunity of coaching King in this year’s OJLL Tournament, and getting a prolonged look at the forward.

“Chayton is a gamer. He has a nice outside shot and isn’t afraid to crash the middle. He’s a threat to score anytime the ball is in his stick,” said Jamieson.

King knows his journey to the NLL has only just begun, and his hard-work will put him in the best position to try and crack a roster spot with the Thunderbirds.

The Thunderbirds return to Scotiabank Centre on December 4, 2021 to take on the Saskatchewan Rush.
