The Hull Seahawks can confirm that Jamie Chilcott has left the club with immediate effect as he retires from the sport.
The 29 year-old began his hockey career for the Kingston Crunch/Predators in Hull before moving overseas for 4 seasons in North America continuing to develop his game which subsequently led to GB U18 & U20 call-ups. But Chilly has predominantly played his ice hockey in Hull as he began his EIHL playing career for the Hull Stingrays and Manchester Storm which lasted three years. He then returned back to Hull from Manchester to play for the Hull Pirates which saw him build up to becoming the captain of club three years in a row lifting the treble in the 2018-2019 season. The hard slap-shotting blue liner made a brief spell for the Leeds Knights last season when no Hull team was icing but then soon signed for the Seahawks this term when able to do so. A credit to the sport as he’s pulled on a Hull jersey more than 300 times throughout his career, something we’re incredibly grateful for and he’ll be missed on and off the ice.
We would like to thank Jamie for his many years of representing Hull ice hockey and we wish him and his family all the very best for the future.
Join us in wishing our #15 a happy retirement from the game and we hope to see you down at the rink again soon!
Thanks for all the memories, Chilly.
