The Chiefs had eight players finish in the top eleven in scoring. The team scored 217 goals in 40 games for an average of 5.42 goals per game andscored 66 more goals than their closest rival. Eric Shewell was the club and league highest scoring defenseman. Eric had 42 points in 40 games (9 goals, 33 assists),  16 points more than Carter Vahey of Uxbridge.

    The Chiefs' goaltenders had the best combined GAA in the COJHL. Zach Wainman led all goaltenders with a 2.17 GAA on 21 wins, 3 losses and 1 OT loss. Kevin Collins finished with 14 wins and 1 loss for a 2.82 GAA. Combined, Zach and Kevin had a 2.42 GAA.
